PROPER, makers of PROPERCORN and PROPERCHIPS, were growing and hiring rapidly when we spoke with them. During a discussion with the company we unpicked their team development goals and identified a need for the team to gain efficiency.

Together we identified a key roadblock that was preventing PROPER from achieving this –– many of their employees were new to Excel, meaning excessive time was being spent on administrative tasks.

We put together a private Excel training course, tailored to PROPER’s needs. The course ran over five weeks and was designed using language that resonated with the team.

Trained by our Co-Founder Thea, the course was delivered in weekly half-day sessions with regular homework tasks for the participants.


The Excel training course was a big success and increased the efficiency and productivity of PROPER’s team. With less time spent on admin, more time could be allocated to more important tasks.

“Thank you for making complicated looking formula easy to understand. Also brilliant that you made the course accessible and useful for a mix of abilities. Every person felt as though they learnt something new and the gaps in experience didn’t show too much.”

“YF had put time and effort into the course content, which included examples which related to our company. This really helped us to understand the formulas better.”

“Thea was amazing – she clearly explained the different aspects / functions of Excel in a language that makes sense. Each area of the course was broken down in a logical way, and the course was sequenced in a way that made sense.”

“Really great teacher! Clear presentations and really relevant exercises!”

‘This course has been an absolute life savour! Excel is far less intimidating than it was 5 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.”
