What our corporate customers say

Very knowledgeable and experienced instructor

Joseph Edward, CEO & Chief Innovation Officer

INVORG Canada's group of Business Analysts (12 in our team) have been learning from Deirdre. We are in the process of estblishing a Centre of Excellence (CoE) for Business Analysis. The experience learning with Deirdre has been wonderful. Very knowledgeable and experienced instructor and kind and generous person. Our group is "loving" it. We are planning to continue our learning and preparing for various certifications. I highly recommend Agora and Deirdre.


  • Do you offer classroom training?

    Yes we do, but only in New Zealand at this time. This can be either a public course or within a corporate private setting. To book a training session, please send an email to customerheros@agorainsights.com

  • Do you have customised courses?

    Yes, we do customize our courses to meet corporate requests. These are outside of our current online course offerings. Types of customized courses might be: working with a team of BAs in a particular sector, working with aspiring business architects in a sector and/or building skills within an organisation. We will work with our corporate customers to understand their training requirements. So contact us for more information.

  • Can I send a corporate team for training?

    Yes, we have a feature in our portal to allow for groups to work together for a group price. We offer additionally services with this bundle should the corporate require it. These include competency assessments, industry relevant templates and one-on-one mentoring. This can be conducted live online or on-site, depending on the location.

  • How much do you charge for corporate training?

    It is really hard to say without knowing what you are looking for. Typical fees are $450 per learner for day with a minimum number of 10 participants. If we custom courses for corporate, we will need to talk about what the training/mentoring requirements are prior to being able to quote.

  • How do I know if the courses are a good quality?

    We work hard at Agora Insights to ensure that our courses meet industry standards. We diligently plan and design each course with our learners in mind, using relevant business cases. However, the best way to tell is though our learners themselves, we have 5 star ratings and a lot of happily certified learners.

  • Do you offer group discounts?

    Yes we can offer 30% discount and 1 hour complimentary live training session via Zoom or Microsoft Teams if you have at least 4 learners from the same organisation signing up to a course bundle. Enquire at support@agorainsights.com to learn more.
