I recently attended the Budgeting and Forecasting in Excel course presented by Danielle Stein Fairhust, Plum Solutions. I found the course to be thoroughly enriching especially with the formulas. I also liked the information and discussion on forecasting. I can see that I will be using this function a great deal in future roles.

I joined Plum Solutions course in Financial Modelling in Excel and Dashboard Reporting. I found the presenter to be uniquely engaging and effective in teaching a class with varied experience levels. The book is also a great read... everything you needed to know and nothing you don't. I also love how the presenter made herself available for follow-up or advanced questions during and after the training. Great job!

Office Finance Manager, BN Group
I liked the course being delivered via a business case that was quite similar to the practice, not just by using simple individual exercises for each function. It will be quite useful for my work. What I really thank to this course is that it inspired many new ideas about the improvement of my current job. It's obvious that the presenter is really proficient in financial modelling. Her presentation was not a boring lecture but an exciting experience. She has her own unique idea and structure of method to make us understand the functions easily.
