Scott Davies

Scott earned an honours degree from the University of Natal (South Africa) in Biochemistry. Following his studies, Scott spent 2 years working in London, initially as a junior programmer and then later as a Microsoft Office trainer.

Returning to Johannesburg, South Africa, Scott spent 3 years working as a report developer using Crystal Reports and Excel.

Scott then started his own business, offering internet connectivity solutions via what was at that time a revolutionary wireless internet product. This business then lead on to providing Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) telephony services.

After 10 years running his own business, Scott returned to work for one of the major banks in South Africa in the data analytics department. Here Scott lead a small team of data analysis specialists, working with SAS, Excel, SQL, SQL Server Reporting Services and Qliksense. During this time, Scott also provided training to colleagues.

After a further 5 years, in 2019, Scott and his family elected to emigrate to the UK, whereupon Scott started a business offering training and consultancy services in Microsoft Excel and Power BI.

Scott is a natural trainer & gets consistently high feedback on the training he delivers. You can read more about the feedback on the testimonials section.
