What participants have said…

“It got me motivated to look at the statistical aspects of my studies and ask more questions. It is not just mathematics, it is much more than that. It was not boring :)”

“The course was very interactive, good mix of theory and practice. Very enjoyable speaker.”

”… was given in a relaxed, open way and not in a boring way with lots of definitions and mathematics but just in a way how a person without statistical background also can understand this …”
