A great course with complex materials delivered in a very comprehensive manner making it easy to follow the concepts and reasoning behind the modelling exercise

Sharpening the Pencil! Great primer on formatting and shortcuts that I’ve always wanted to know. This was a great reminder that we’re not just building models for our own use, but to be shared with others and that is why they should be constructed in a manner that is clear, easy to read and easy to run alternative scenarios from.

It was a great course – super insightful and practical, and really enjoyed the discussions the group had as well as hear some of the stories you have from the industry! It was easily the more useful than all the previous training I’d received combined, largely due to the detail and bottom-up explanations that helped us get our head around the various concepts

Full of substance and easy to comprehend. The content was very precise and touched on so many fundamental modelling necessities at the same time. Highly recommended. Rated 5 out of 5

Kehinde Abiove – Renewable Energy Project Finance Modeling (Online)

 

Thank you for providing such an exceptional course on Project Finance Modeling. I struggle to find a critique in my reflection. Both trainers were extremely helpful and positive, which made the course that much greater. I want to especially thank you for coming back to follow up on the Macro’s Lessons. That piece really tied the course together for me and further demonstrated Pivotal180’s dedication to excellence.

Seyler Skudneski  ING – Project Finance Modeling  August 2023 In-Person New York

The course was very well presented, and done in a way that really explained the logic and concepts behind the model as well as creating the model itself. Also really great to pick up a lot of good tips about best practice modelling. The online materials are also a really good base for the in class learning.

Hoping to be able to do a bit more of your classes going forward.

Detailed and pedagogical!

As someone new to finance, this course was a bit like drinking out of a fire hose. I think this course is perfect with someone who has a basic foundation in Excel and finance and wants a more detailed understanding. Still, I was super impressed by the attention to detail for each lesson and the amount of information contained.

Excellent course

Complete breakdown of the financial model into great detail, with excellent lessons and examples. Even though the material can be quite dry, lessons were given in a very engaging and even fun way. Loved the occasional jokes, will definitely recommend!

 Haydn was brilliant, and I don’t throw that out lightly.

I teach,  do seminars, and SME for many clients and have pretty high expectations – not many people could have kept me positively engaged for 10 sessions. The material is exceptionally well organized to tie-in the “model building” with the “model thinking” which is challenging for the complexity of the material.

Great course for new & experienced TE modelers

Thanks Haydn and team for the great course. Even with several years of TE experience, I still found the lesson plan valuable.

Informative and easy to follow

I already have several years of experience in renewable energy modelling, but I still found that Pivotal180 training included several tips & tricks along the way (esp. regarding model set up and design) that I will incorporate into my own work. I also thought the lectures strike a good balance between the “why” we need to know about the underlying details of a project and “how” we translate that into a model; e.g. being able to set up and size a term loan correctly.

I just wanted to say thanks to Pivotal for putting together such a great course! The modelling skills and renewable energy project finance knowledge I gained from this course was a significant factor in helping me land my new job in renewable energy project finance for a large IPP here in the United States. Tell the team great job. Thanks so much. Quinn Nereson

The trainers were outstanding and they contributed to the quality of the virtual training sessions and the effectiveness of the interchange was enhanced by the professionalism they displayed in providing videoconferencing support and on-line access platforms for regulatory knowledge enhancement.

CEO, Utility Regulatory Authority Mauritius on the Project Finance and Utility Regulated Tariff Training by Pivotal180

Thank you so much for your training! I wish I had this training so much earlier in my career, it was very helpful and I’m sure it will benefit us greatly in the future. I wouldn’t change a thing!  Colin Harris Greenbank – Tailored Course 

I feel  this was incredibly helpful, and we have already run into several instances where we have been able to translate something from the course into our daily work. Jordyn and I both agreed that we would recommend this course for anyone new to our company as an analyst. It can be difficult to catch up when you work for a smaller company, and this course filled in A LOT of knowledge gaps we have had since day 1.

I am extremely happy with this course and the simplified, step-by-step presentation from the Pivotal 180 team. The material is directly applicable to projects I work on, and it has helped expedite my transition into the investments side of the business. I’d highly recommend it to anyone looking to improve their financial modeling skills! Rated 5 out of 5  Daniel Yanchus on Renewable Energy Project Finance Modeling (Online)!
