What students are saying:

I think Stephen does a good job presenting the information and answering questions, he is obviously very knowledgeable in this area and comfortable teaching to beginners.
The instructor was well-informed and presented things very clearly.
Instructor was very clear and effective in his teaching style. His presentation at the last SAS Global Forum made me make the decision to attend this course.

What is your favorite training course and why?
My favorite SAS course is Programming with SAS/IML Software. SAS/IML (IML stands for Interactive Matrix Language) is not limited to any one task. The course reflects this, and includes demonstrations such as solving the Monty Hall problem with simulation and bootstrapping data using R.

What is the best part about teaching?
The best part of teaching a SAS class is the students. They work in many different fields and are interested in applying new techniques in their work. As a result, they tend to be very motivated and ask difficult questions. It makes teaching SAS classes both fun and challenging.

What is your favorite place or dream vacation destination?
My new favorite place to visit is Belgium. I had the opportunity to vacation there with my wife after presenting at a conference, and we both loved the experience.
