"The course was delivered extremely well – Danielle was knowledgeable and very patient when required and did not rush on to try and meet deadlines keeping conversations relevant and topical. Sections where easy to follow, and the explanation of the calculations where shared on screen to ensure everyone understood as we progressed through the course. I learned a lot more than I thought from the course and it will help me feel more confident when presented with figures in my work environment and more comfortable to ask relevant questions around the construction of them."
