Would you like to increase your
efficiency and productivity?

Do you have so much data that you’re not quite sure what to do with it?  How do you summarize and analyze that data?  What types of calculations are required?  Can I sort the data or filter out specific bits of data?


Are you writing a user’s guide or creating correspondence?  Trouble with margins aligning or fitting paragraphs to a page? How do I insert pictures and have the text wrap around the picture?


How many bullet points should I really put onto a slide? Can I link an Excel chart to a PowerPoint slide so that it updates? Is animation necessary? How can I remember all the points I want to discuss while a slide is displayed?


Can I create a distribution list for group emails?  What is the difference between an appointment and a meeting? 


So Many Questions!!!
