⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐“The Young Foodies Excel Course has helped carve hours off our work in the Operations department. I would recommend it to any FMCG professional” Mallow & Marsh

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “This course has been an absolute life savour! I now feel confident when tackling an excel sheet and well versed in syntax. Excel is far less intimidating than it was 6 weeks ago and now that I can create efficient spreadsheets, I’m sure I’m going to have so much more time on my hands to put towards other productive tasks, or to stand by the coffee machine and talk about the wonders of a nested IF with my colleagues!” PROPERCORN
