What students are saying:

Bill is great, very articulate, thorough, knowledgeable, and personable! He knows SAS inside and out, and took extra efforts to tailor it to our needs and explain best practices.
Mr. Powers was excellent. I'm not as familiar with SAS as some of the people in the class since I don't use it on an everyday basis but he made the information understandable and relatable.
Excellent instructor, probably ranks as one of the best I've has since I've been using SAS. Provided real world problems and solutions. He had a very good delivery and a very good understanding of the material and how to teach it. Enjoyed the class very much.

What is your favorite training course and why?
The SAS Macro Language courses because they provide attendees with tools to develop sophisticated applications that utilize the full power of SAS.

What is the best part about teaching?
It is very satisfying to see attendees not only learn how to develop SAS programs but to also start relating course content to solving their own particular problems.

Do you have any hobbies, favorite activities, or hidden talents?
Traveling - Both far and wide
