Our Approach


Since 2012, we have held firm to our belief that training should be fun to be effective. Capturing the attention of an employee is the first task when trying to train and our playful and informative style separates Excel and Flourish from the sea of online webinars and cattle call competitors. Our day is made when an employee sits back from their screen with a satisfied smile knowing they are going to save hours of work every week because of a new method or trick.

While we make sure our training is enjoyable, the content isn’t fluff. Our classes are laser focused on the most relevant, up-to-date information available. We’re the training company employees want back, and we partner long-term with employers to improve productivity and grow their business.

We rebranded as Excel & Flourish in 2017 after the demand for MS Office training grew exponentially.
