“Hi Lorraine, FYI, the training went very well this morning and everyone was happy with it, sufficient for it to be taken forward to UAT/ORT.

Thank you so much for working tirelessly on this and making it look fantastic. It will certainly be an improvement to the business and sets the foundations for a more streamlined and beneficial order capture.

You have been amazing and I am so grateful!!!
I hope you have a fabulous weekend and actually get to rest. Thank you”

- Product Manager

“I had a pleasure of working with Lorraine on a set of complex Excel-based order forms for Virgin Media Business. Despite numerous rounds of revision and extreme time pressure, Lorraine remained professional and calm at all times.

She immediately understood what my goals were, always had a positive answer and often was able to recommend a much better solution. The quality of her work is unquestionable and expertise in Excel truly indisputable.

I can’t recommend Lorraine enough – thank you for supporting me throughout the last few weeks!”

“Lorraine, this is fantastic. Thanks so much for getting back to me so swiftly, and your suggestions as to how to further make this document a bit more informative and dynamic. I’ll look to implement some of these suggestions immediately. Kind regards, and thanks once again”

- Marketing

“In our experience creative agencies don’t tend to have advanced MS Office skills at their disposal, so ‘Excel Expertise Ltd’ really is a gem of a find. Lorraine demonstrated an amazing knowledge of the software – through proactive suggestions, insightful questioning into our requirements and fine attention to detail, we have seen excellent deliverables.”

Prosell Learning Ltd

“Having tried several CRM and project management software solutions, our company realised that none of the solutions on the market allows for enough flexibility to meet our requirements. That is when we decided to build a bespoke project management tool in Excel. After a quick Google search, we came across Excel Expertise Ltd, and Lorraine, who, from the very first moment surprised us with her ‘can do’ attitude.

In addition to understanding our requirements, she was able to provide many suggestions and she always seemed to have an answer to all our questions. I would recommend Lorraine to anyone who needs an Excel expert – knowledgeable, efficient and reliable – she is an absolute pleasure to work with!”

- Product Manager, Prosell Learning Ltd

“The training session with Lorraine was brilliant. In just three hours she managed to explain every formula and feature that is used in the Excel tool that she created for our company. She answered all my questions and provided several awesome tips and tricks in Excel that have already proven to be extremely useful.

Would recommend the session to everyone as Lorraine makes even the most difficult areas of Excel look simple. Excel finally makes sense to me, Thanks Lorraine!"

MARS UK

“Hi Lorraine, many thanks for going through this so thoroughly and picking up on all the points I had missed.

Thank you as well for your continuing focus and technical expertise on this project. We are in a very good position for the meeting tomorrow and I am sure we will be able to start really using the content to make decisions and support our activity managers better.”

“Hi both, just wanted to let you know that the demo worked perfectly, everyone thought it was excellent work, and we started the conversation on how our team could collaborate in building capability across TLO to be able to execute the process effectively.

Thanks again to both of you for some great work!”

BP

“Lorraine at Excel Expertise Ltd was recommended by a business contact. My initial contact with her to clarify how she could help and the manner in which she provides this support was straightforward and gave me the confidence to proceed.

Lorraine’s professionalism and work ethic really became evident during an intense period on a high profile project here at BP. She helped us build a sophisticated tool to assess and analyse users during a project. Her mastery of Excel, from creating professional looking layout, writing complex formulas, building macros and providing general advice on different options available to get things done, was second to none.

Lorraine is easy to deal with, knowledgeable about Excel and various other MS Office Applications and she never missed a deadline.

The quality of the tool she built was recognised in the business as a key success factor to the successful delivery of the change project.
Lorraine – thanks for all your hard work and commitment to the success of our project.”

NSR Management

“Lorraine is one of those chance discoveries that are rare and I would not hesitate in hiring again. She solved a problem that was giving me a headache with one of our excel based products. She came up with a user-friendly solution that is secure and met all of our objectives. I found her to be a woman of integrity who priced her services reasonably and she kept to her prices! She was highly responsive to our needs as a customer and even went as far as solving issues that were related to our customers' operating systems.”

Floor Cleaning Machines Ltd

“We came across Lorraine from a quick Google search for “excel expert” and that she certainly is! The challenge was a 900-page asset list in PDF, this being completely impossible to work with yet forming the basis of a £1.4M maintenance contract, which couldn’t be mobilised without the asset list being in a workable format.

I’m pleased and relieved to say that Lorraine came up trumps by very quickly and calmly providing an Excel format which we could work with going forward. Without a doubt, we would strongly recommend Excel Expertise Ltd.”

The Classic Barn Company

Very professional service, quick turn around with an experienced knowledge on creating excel spread sheets – we even got taught some functionalities that assisted our business, that we hadn’t realised excel had to offer.
We received an impressive service with a fast turn around; clearly this company has an excellent knowledge in the complexities of excel. We turned to these guys after others had not been able to provide the level of invoice creating that we required – highly recommend.

I was looking to alter, combine, and improve a number of excel documents I had acquired over the years into one quick-to-use document and that’s when I came across Excel Expertise Ltd. Lorraine was very helpful, knowledgeable, and understanding. I saw that she offered training so we agreed that I would receive training while altering, combining and improving the excel documents. The training was informative and well-delivered. I am very happy with the result and I would recommend Excel Expertise Ltd without reservation.

I am once again so very grateful for the quick response you provided in dealing with my issue. All the best.”

The Jordans & Ryvita Company Ltd

“Dear Lorraine, as a company, Ryvita has been working with Excel Expertise Ltd for more than a year now. However, I’m not sure we’ve taken the opportunity to formally thank you and your team for your continued support with our Excel/Word training program and Excel Data Management.

The candidates who have recently attended your course have commented that “the training content was excellent and relevant; having completed the pre-course knowledge questionnaire and the trainer was enthusiastic, ensuring her experience and knowledge was put to good use to effectively get the message across.

I myself have used and continue to use your skills regards Training data management and have found you to be both competent and patient. Once I explained the scope and magnitude of the job you, then introduced me to some amazing things that can be done in Excel and took the time to ensure I understood my next steps to achieve my goals.

I look forward to arranging more training with you in the near future and our continued collaboration with our training program. Many thanks."

-Training Coordinator

“Excel Expertise Ltd provided Intermediate and Advanced Excel Training and Word Training over four sessions. I found the training very organised with a step-by-step approach to learning Excel and Word. There were lots of examples in each lesson; including videos for reference at a later date; I learnt something new each lesson, even if I was familiar with a particular topic. Training material was informative, organised and well-structured and very useful for reference. I would certainly recommend ‘Excel Expertise Ltd’ for Microsoft Office training needs.”

“Everything is going well here, the client sheets are working a treat other than when the client has given us a wrong email address, which has left me more time to focus on streamlining the appointments process and making sure he isn’t going into the same remote areas, which has meant that as he is booked up 🙂 So thanks again for all your help it has made a huge impact on our lives and given us hours of time back, really don’t feel as if I am working 24/7 anymore!”

- Equine Dentist
“I found Lorraine on the web and liked what I read and gave her a ring to see if she could help, as soon as I spoke to her she just got me, understood what I was trying to achieve, she didn’t need to understand the business, but she took a keen interest and even came up with ideas on how to streamline the business.

The outcome is we have a package that works all of our business, eradicating the tedious paper trails we were producing and a professional system for our customers. The bonus to us, we have actually booked three holidays this year which we haven’t done for nearly 3 years, as every time we had time off in the past, it was to catch up with paperwork.

I would highly recommend Lorraine for her professional, courteous and caring approach to our business and problems. I have been amazed at how quickly she has sorted issues and got back to us, even out of hours, without which would have meant we would have had to shut the work down. We can’t thank her enough.”

It was only by chance that we found Excel Expertise Ltd and we’re very happy to say that the work that’s been completed and the support that’s been offered has been efficient, precise and effective.

I was really impressed with how she was able to understand what we required and was able to suggest solutions. We had several spreadsheets combined and some really useful Macros. The work Lorraine has done has saved me lots of time each week removing the need to update different records. All the work was completed in a timely manner.

Rockspring

“I was extremely pleased to discover Lorraine’s company ‘Excel Expertise’ through a general search on the web. Time was of the essence as a project deadline was imminent. Other Consultants had been approached but were unable to engage as they did not have the expertise required. With a brief introduction and explanation of our specific requirements, Lorraine was able to provide an effective solution within the time frame allocated. She did a fantastic job and her involvement had ensured that business operations were not impacted by our planned changes. In response to a second initiative, we had contracted Excel Expertise to deliver a bespoke/in-house Excel 2010 macro training event. The event was extremely well received by all delegates in attendance. Thank you very much, Lorraine!”

- IT Manager

“We needed to get some Excel VBA code that we had “adopted” after a member of staff had left at short notice. The code was quite complex and a bit messy but Excel Expertise Ltd helped us to understand what was happening and how we might tidy up the code and make it a bit more efficient. We now feel confident that we could build similar macros going forward to make data gathering a much more efficient and safer process.”

The Gluttonous Gardener

“I can highly recommend Lorraine and Excel Expertise. With her fantastic experience, she has provided us with a solution that will save us time, minimise errors and improve efficiency. We had been trying to find a solution and kept coming up against people who said it couldn’t be done. Lorraine at Excel Expertise, however has a fantastic can do attitude and resolved all of our issues with efficiency and speed. I cannot recommend her highly enough, she is a pleasure to deal with.”

“I would just like to personally thank Lorraine for her exceptional work in creating a very complicated custom spreadsheet. I trade futures and needed an in depth spreadsheet to capture and analyse data from my broker’s platform. This involved creating a link (way over my head!) between the new sheet and my brokerage account. I must add that the above may seem like an easy task but 2 companies failed to return my emails after initially bombarding me how wonderful they are, upon realising that they didn’t have a clue how to do what I wanted!
Lorraine certainly didn’t shy away from the task and had the up most confidence from the offset and I certainly wasn’t disappointed with the finished product. I now have a unique tool to capture and analyse volume that is totally automated. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Excel Expertise Ltd to anyone. Keep up the good work!!”

“Lorraine at Excel Expertise Ltd came up with the solution to clean-up and consolidate our marketing databases which were spared across several work-streams and geographical locations. Lorraine helped to make sense of all the information. I would highly recommend her work.”

“The work carried out by Excel Expertise Ltd has helped me take my company’s spreadsheet to another level. Working closely as a team as well as individually, Lorraine has been able to take my needs and produce the sheets to enable me to sort out problems quickly and effectively and I would recommend the company to those whose needs are high but time is never enough. I was able to tell Lorraine what I needed and how and she was quick to produce and edit as per my direction. Thank you once again.”
