Why us

With a Demarq Academy workshop, you’ll take away the skills needed to raise your profile and influence decision makers.

That’s because our courses are designed and delivered by experts with 25 years experience managing analytical projects and teams. We are analysts training analysts and we think that matters. Our workshops are unique and provide the necessary soft skills and know-how you need to become an effective analyst. Employers are recognising that they need Data Scientists and Analysts with soft skills and not just technical qualifications, so if you work in Data Analytics, Insight Analytics, Business Intelligence, Credit Risk or Management Information you’ll leave us with the skills required to influence your peers and stakeholders and improve your value and respect.

Our workshops are…

Interactive, engaging sessions relevant to the data scientist community

Practical case study examples focusing on analytical related challenges.

Small group sizes (usually fewer than 10), so you get more out of it.

Public or tailor-made workshops throughout the UK – cost effective solutions to fit your requirements.
