Today’s event in Kegworth was a chance to investigate tools and techniques to improve Advanced Forecasting and Financial Modelling in the NHS. Many thanks to everyone who came and made the day so interesting and challenging. It was a pleasure to have your company.
Here are some of the evaluation comments (all reproduced with written permission):
“We thoroughly enjoyed the day and picked up lots of useful tips we can utilise in our jobs.”
“I really wasn’t sure what to expect today, but sincerely hoped I would leave with an understanding of forecasting, the methods used and the ability to do it. The day was absolutely fantastic! David delivered the course beautifully and created an atmosphere where we all felt safe to ask questions and expand our knowledge. I cannot wait to get back to work on Monday and crack on!! Thank you so much.”
“A useful, informative and practical course which really made you think about the different methods of looking at modelling.”
“I just wanted to say thanks for an excellent workshop today (Advanced Forecasting and Financial Modelling). It was varied and had lots of opportunity to reflect on current practices in the NHS. I’d recommend this to anyone who would like some time out to reflect on how well – and not so well too – their own organisation is doing. Some useful practical tips, as well as a few advanced forecasting topics as well. Thanks again.”
