Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs

When will I receive access to the course

Since this is a presale, the course is not yet accessible.

It will be ready in January 2024 and you’ll get then full access to all the material.

I work full-time, what is the expected time commitment?

That’s the beauty of a self-paced course: you can take the time you want or need.


I calculated 2 hours of video and around 2 hours of exercises.


But it doesn’t matter if you do in one day (not recommended) or in 2 years (not recommended neither).


My recommendation, if you accept it, is to attack the 1 section per week

Can I get reimbursed by my company?

Most companies appreciate it if employees want to improve their skills and are happy to pay for courses such as this one. To help you with requesting reimbursement, we drafted an email request you can send to your manager 

What’s the refund policy?

If until 14 days after the course completion, you don’t find the course valuable, I’ll happily refund your full payment

Do I get lifetime access?

YES, for sure. Buy once and you can access the course for life + any update I make to the course for free

Are there technical requirements?

Exercises will be done with Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint and I can guarantee working features as from versions 2016.

So you should have those tools installed on your computer or access to the online version at least.

If not, Google tools could do the trick but I can’t ensure 100% of the features are present

Also make sure to have a camera and a microphone for the final exam

How will I test my progress?

I always make sure my trainings are active: quizzes, exercises, interactions and games will be there to make sure you don’t fall asleep.

But the biggest attraction will be the final exam: a presentation, face camera, of the use case you worked on during the whole training.

You’ll get access to that exclusive exercise with my personal feedback after you completed a major portion of the course and satisfactorily showed your knowledge through the quizzes

I have more questions, who do I contact?

Simply send a mail to soufyan@soufbp.com if you have questions about the Financial Storytelling Program and I’ll answer within 48 hour
