Thoughtful and practical training to take your insight abilities to the next level

I have been working with insights in CPG for a long time but have learned most of my knowledge informally while on the job. Even with this experience, I thought Delta’s training was incredibly useful. It helped systematically break down approaches to data analysis and communication – smoothing over some of my rough spots and giving me a better idea of how to coach others in a smarter way. I did my training and testing virtually and I can tell they put a lot of effort into making the material come to life and go smoothly in this environment. I am definitely applying some of these tactics in my day to day meetings as well. Good experience and I will recommend to others in my field.

I would recommend this class to anyone in the retail industry (and more)! Such great learnings that I will be taking forward with me long into my career. Jammie and Sterling were excellent teachers and took what seemed like daunting material and made it easy to understand.

Very well organized training program balancing live sessions and “at your own pace” practice cases ensures that the concepts are understood and put in practice. Lots of tips on how to identify key business insights and communicate them to your audience in a compelling way. The professors have tons of real life experience and will help a lot.

The course covers retail math, excel charting, data analysis and business insights writing. This 5 month programme (including exam), though stressful, has been beneficial. Our instructor, Jammie, is knowledgeable and is super patience. She followed up with us regularly to ensure we were on track for our assignments and offered help whenever we needed. I have been able to apply the skills acquired on my work. Thank you!

Jammie and Sterling were tremendous coaches and listeners.
While the pace was manageable, both instructors did a great job of balancing the time participants needed while also keeping things moving. I can only imagine the challenge it is when working with classes that have such different skill sets and also so many different types of businesses being represented.
I have already strongly recommended to some of my colleagues and also some friends that work at other companies.
The experience was thought provoking, challenging, and enjoyable. I truly feel much more well versed in executing in my role in my current position.
Thanks Jammie and Sterling!

I used to make busy charts. And long commentaries to explain as much as I can. But with the Delta training, I learned to be more concise. It helped me isolate the facts that matter. I talk less, but still able to convince my stakeholders. Meetings are more efficient with senior leaders. Coming to a decision is much faster, which leaves more room for action.

The Delta Black Belt Level 1 course was great!
Due to Covid I took this class virtually and still felt like the instructors (David and Jammie) were very good at getting to know me and engaging everyone. The class size is small so you can all interact with one another as well as the instructors. I felt comfortable asking questions or if I needed further explanations for anything. Examples were ‘real world’ which I believe is very beneficial. I began utilizing information as soon as we learned it!
Thank you for the great course…I’m getting compliments from vendors on the feedback I’m able to provide them.
