Trainer Darryll Magboo Darryll Magboo
Darryll has worked for Axiell since 2014 and in his role as a trainer has trained over 20 different client sites. He has experience running a range of sessions across our different software products.

He started with Axiell initially as a junior developer and has also worked on the Help Desk supporting customers. This gives Darryll a good understanding of the software from both a technical and user perspective; skills which he uses to help users get the most out of training.

I very much enjoyed the pace of the course and the level of interactivity he achieved, in spite of the fact that we were doing remote training.

[The trainer] did a great job of making sure everyone's questions and concerns were addressed, and made sure that everyone had a comprehensive understanding of the concepts we covered.
