I recently took an online Excel course with The Excel-Lady herself, Anne Walsh. In the past few years, I took many part-time courses to educate myself in starting up my Training business. Without a doubt, I learned the most by taking this course with Anne. It comprised four 2-hour classes over two weeks. For me, this was much better than taking an in-person course for one full day because it gave me the chance to reflect what I had learned that day and then practice those skills in the homework given by Anne in my own time. Anne gave individual feedback to each participant regarding their homework and gave links when needed to additional resources she’s created in each area. This week, I am proud to say; I could take a template given and generate my drop data list to create my business accounts with 90% less anxiety than this time a few months ago. It is an incredible feeling of accomplishment, and I could not have managed it if I hadn’t taken the course. Anne is a patient teacher, who teaches the participants at their pace. It never worried me asking a question because of the way Anne responded to questions. In the beginning, I was wondering [and a bit skeptical too!] why someone could be so highly enthusiastic about Excel Worksheets! But after learning tips/hacks and Excel skills which make life easier and paperwork and presentations made fun to create, I fully understand why teaching others those skills makes Anne smile and love her job. I highly recommend Anne Walsh as an Excel trainer.
She offers Great tips and Time saving tools which have helped me a lot. ☺Recently I asked more than 10 people in my office, (all who were skilled at excel) for a quick way to fill in the blank spaces with the correct information.They all tried to think of a way but we still didn’t figure it out. I send Anne a short email to ask her for help ! And W@W, she answer my email within an hour.
Her tip was clear, accurate, and it did exactly what I needed it to do. Then going the extra mile, she also included a tip sheet, with another 15 time savers.I look forward to all her emails, and have found her to be a wonderful resource. ”
Very good materials were provided by which included Excel shortcuts and take home material. Anne is extremely hands on with her approach to teaching Excel and I find that is the best way to learn.
I cannot recommend Anne highly enough – she has a lovely manner and gets superb reviews from her training. She delivers for Mac or Windows and in English or Irish !
I have used alot of Anne’s resources as part of teaching Beginners Excel and higher levels. I find them very useful and so easy to use and follow.She provides excellent tutorials and handouts. I always look forward to receiving her Tutorials. I also purchased her book and have attended her 1 day training course.
“Anne Walsh, Microsoft Certified Trainer facilitates training sessions in University Hospital Galway. A colleague of mine attended Excel training and discussed with Anne our staff training record needs and how she would suggest improvements to it. The current excel system for staff training records did not meet our requirements. Anne designed a template that she felt may be beneficial to us. On review of this template, I contacted Anne who advised me to create a new spreadsheet that would allow me enter all training records and extract the information through advanced functions and pivot tables. After several meetings with Anne, she created a system that is now easy to maintain, easy to expand (if we get additional staff, courses or departments) and which can produce the up to date figures I need in minutes. The development of this system needed a lot of work and support and guidance which Anne facilitated with great enthusiasm. Her in-depth knowledge and expertise were invaluable to me. I found her very approachable and accommodated all my requests for assistance. This training system could be replicated and used in any organisation. Thank you Anne for all your assistance.”
I’d also like to commend you for your excellent training yesterday; I only wish we had longer to dig into things in depth. Your excellent preparation, materials, knowledge, enthusiasm, and attention to detail really came across in the classroom environment. Probably the best training experience I’ve had in my six years with this company.4.75 out of 5 stars. Well Done!
“Worked a treat! That’ll save a lot of time on the next one-thank you. “Just one tip from Anne saved me over an hour of tedious repetition
“Thanks very much for your email and for the course yesterday.It met all my requirements. The content wasn’t too much and it wasn’t too little, it was just right. And was delivered really well. It was great. ”
