Our story


Prior to starting a new job in consulting, Analyst Academy founder Paul Moss felt frustrated by the lack of high-quality PowerPoint training available. The training he received at his firm lacked the detail he needed, and other courses he could find online were either too basic, too old, or just not relevant to PowerPoint-heavy professions like consulting.


After years of consulting and strategy experience, Paul noticed that nobody had solved his problem from earlier. PowerPoint training was still terrible! Nobody was providing the type of training needed by top consulting firms, and even the consulting firms themselves struggled to provide the right training for their consultants.

So after after thousands of hours working in PowerPoint, learning from industry experts, and providing PowerPoint training in a variety of settings, Paul and his team decided to create Analyst Academy. The first official piece of content? A simple YouTube video.


Following the success of the Analyst Academy YouTube channel, the first official course was created: Advanced PowerPoint for Consultants. It was immediately met with interest from students, professionals, and companies of all sizes. People from all around the world began taking the course, and within just a few months over 100 students had enrolled.


Advanced PowerPoint for Consultants continued to be a success, having been taken by 1,000+ students and professionals in 50+ countries around the world. It received rave reviews, and many Analyst Academy customers were eager for more. 

In response, a new course was created: Advanced Presentations for Consultants. Instead of learning how to efficiently use PowerPoint, students could now learn how to structure, design, and assemble an effective presentation. Like it’s older sibling, Advanced Presentations for Consultants quickly caught fire, and soon became the most popular course on Analyst Academy.


Analyst Academy continued to grow in leaps and bounds through 2021, providing courses to individuals and organizations in consulting, finance, and a wide range of other industries and functions. Sweeping changes were brought to the company that included new branding, a revamped website and improved course platform, and a fully-fledged social media presence designed to bring high-quality content to students and professionals around the world.


To date, Analyst Academy has delivered training to 25,000+ professionals in 100+ countries around the world. Companies of all sizes and types, from large multinational organizations to small starups, have relied on Analyst Academy to train their employees on critical topics such as PowerPoint, presentation design, and data visualization.

Analyst Academy is trusted around the world:
