Meet the Team


Stuart is the owner and main trainer behind Burningsuit Ltd; he is a member of the Learning and Performance Institute and a Microsoft Certified Professional.

He delivers training for Burningsuit specialising in Microsoft Power BI Service, SharePoint and Office 365, but can train on most Microsoft applications and a number of esoteric subjects such as Ubuntu Linux and Python Programming.

Stuart began working in Information Technology when Computers were bigger than your living room but had less power than your mobile phone. He has progressed through most of the jobs you can do in IT, from Operator to Programmer, Systems Analyst, Manager and Technical Director. He managed a group of 50 programmers at the American computing giant Unisys but left to save his home county of Sussex from the ravages of the year 2000 bug.

He started Burningsuit in August 2000 to provide help for organisations who wanted to make the best use of IT in their business. His combination of both practical business and technology skills has meant Burningsuit are a leading training provider for bespoke IT courses.

As one of his clients was kind enough to put it:- “The combination of understanding both of business and how IT relates to business is rare; having both, and using it to client advantage, is worth loads.”




Alison joined Burningsuit in February 2001. Previously employed as a senior trainer with a major training company, she has over 30 years’ experience of IT training, 20 of which have been in Microsoft Applications.

Alison is a Fellow of the Learning and Performance Institute, an Institute Certified Training Professional and a Microsoft Certified Trainer. She also holds the Training Foundation's TAP Accreditation in Training Delivery Skills.

Having previously trained extensively in Excel PowerPivot and DAX (Data Analysis Expressions), the transition into Microsoft Power BI training five years ago was a logical step to make for Alison. Although still delivering training in Excel, her specialist areas are Power BI Desktop and DAX and she also works as a data analysis consultant in these systems.



Our trainers are experienced experts in Power BI training and as members of the Microsoft Power BI influencers group, we are one of the first to hear about updates and stay one step ahead of the game.

Having worked with Power BI since it’s launch 2014 we completely understand it’s uses and benefits and how it can positively impact businesses; we structure our training courses so you get the most out of the software.


We regularly update our blog with the latest updates to Power BI, helpful guides on how to use certain functions within the platform and information about our courses. Visit our blog and expand your knowledge and skills of Power BI from the comfort of your own home.
