“I recently had Wendy Hawthorn, of Hawthorn Training, recommended to me by our Human Resources Dept. I was looking for a Microsoft Excel 2007 course which could be tailored to my current knowledge level in the program. Wendy was great because she spent some time with me on the phone and sent a questionnaire that assisted her in making a decision about what amount of training would be best for me. The sessions were one-on-one, utilizing course exercises that were then applied to worksheets I use on a daily basis. These sessions were most helpful in that they gave me an in-depth knowledge of how to navigate the program. This was helpful for me due to recently changing from Excel 2003 to Excel 2007, which is very different. I would not hesitate to recommend Wendy to anyone looking to be a more competent user.”

“Hawthorn Training has been invaluable in helping me get the most from Office 07. Her practical hands on approach has saved me countless hours of frustration, and the templates she has helped me develop save me time, and money, every time I use them. The value is there and I highly recommend Wendy and her company for Microsoft training.”

Program participants report that they really appreciate how clearly Wendy explains the concepts and how the training is adapted to their specific needs. READ will continue to hire Hawthorn Training because of the individualized lessons and excellent results.”

“Wendy certainly knows her stuff. She dealt very capably with a techno-phobe like me, showing admirable patience, flexibility and perseverance. I am immeasurably more comfortable and savvy with Word, Excel and Entourage and I greatly appreciate her willingness to answer questions after the course had ended.”
