Sharron Gunn, Chief Operating Officer, ICAEW

When I came across the ICAEW Data Analytics Certificate Programme, I was particularly attracted to the elements of the course like Python and machine learning, which meant I could really get to the core of data analytics and learn skills that are especially relevant to the accounting profession. There is currently very little practical data analytics training customised for finance professionals, so this course really stood out to me.
