About us

About us

Cognopia was founded in 2016 to help companies win with data.  We started with a focus on technology, but rapidly realised that the main obstacles holding our customers back were their People and Processes.  The data people wanted to deliver excellence, but lacked guidance on how to get this right.

Save time

Save time

Every day we see that data people are overwhelmed.  They're being bombarded with requests for reports, to help on projects and to keep giving more analytics. But they also know the company data needs to be improved to really add value.  Unfortunately, many great data people have to waste even more time wading through Google just to learn where and how to start.

Steep learning curve

Steep learning curve

We know how hard it is to gain skills in data and data management. The basic concepts are easy enough, but being able to apply those concepts in the context of your firm is tricky. Too many courses are theoretical guff, or overly technical. To truly understand the concepts you need practical, simple and direct advice that you can actually apply in the real-world. We help you avoid the worry that your work won't have impact.

Right, first time

Right, first time

What's worse than no training? Getting bad training. We want you to get it right, first time. We have taken what we know and packaged it into bite-sized learning nuggets that can be immediately put into practice. Don't waste another minute scouring the internet for clues. We teach you practical skills that will wow your business peers.

Don't go crazy

Leave frustration behind

We hate boring, monotonous and confusing courses. We have all been frustrated by training that sends you to sleep. Our courses are designed to entertain as much as  to teach. We believe that learning must be fun. Courses have to be quick, to the point, and easy to follow. 

Real world examples

Keep it real

We believe that practical, real world examples are essential to understanding. If we want to put a price on the value of data, we try to do it with a company you're familiar with. We take real-world scenarios and walk through them so you understand each and every step.

Fairly priced

Value for money

Most of the people we talk to could not afford high-quality training. Their firms would not pay for these essential skills. Enterprise-grade education is out of the reach of the masses. We believe in democratising knowledge. We want to train as many people as possible to ensure data gets the attention it deserves. Our subscription model delivers on that promise.
