Our Clients Love Us

I'm so glad we hired the Gump team for our training needs... they've saved us from countless hours of tedious and unnecessary work by optimizing our efficiency in every aspect of Excel. We have taken 7 private in-person Excel courses with Gump, and our team is now far more confident using Excel ... thank you so much.
Jill Spriet
Fernlea Flowers
All our employees were always very happy with the training we received from Gump. Excel can be a dry topic, but they made it fun and easy to follow and were very accommodating in allowing us to choose topics for many custom courses this past year. They also provide very professional textbooks for all of their courses.

Gump provided excellent training for a variety of skill levels. Michele was willing to travel to our Mississauga and Sudbury facilities and everyone enjoyed her thoroughness and flexibility with learning styles. I'm often asked when the next session will be and I was quickly able to see people apply their knowledge.
Eamonn Doorly

Michele is an excellent instructor and pleasant to deal with. She's very well spoken and explained the steps in a way we were all able to understand and took the extra time if someone needed more help. She also kept it light, entertaining and funny. I highly recommend GUMP for any Microsoft Office training!
