Coming out of University I had no idea what career path I wanted to follow – the only thing I was sure of was that I did not want to pursue a career in my completed degree (Civil Engineering)! After a few fortunate events, I found myself in a position where I was working in a great training company with a huge range of courses on offer.
With a mathematical and analytical background, I found myself doing more and more data analysis in-house but I was getting fed up of how restrictive our CRM system was at spitting out useful data. With a SQL backend, the obvious thing to do would be to learn some basic SQL querying so that I could obtain the raw data I need. My manager suggested that I attend one of our publically run SQL Server Essentials courses. Initially I was sceptical – I can learn that myself from a book can’t I? It was how I had got through University, why can’t I carry on with my tried and trusted methods!?
Having attended the course, my attitude completely changed. For the first time in years, I was being taught a subject by someone who was both passionate in the subject and had a genuine interest in the needs of each individual delegate. I left with more knowledge than I could have gained from reading a book for 2 days and with a genuine excitement in using my newly gained knowledge in the workplace! I came out with the honest belief that even in the technology-filled world that we currently live in, there is no true substitute for Face-to-Face Learning delivered by an expert in their field.
