Why These Courses?

Relevance and Retention

"Just thought I'd let you know that what you said about every show being a new show - different people have purchased a ticket - helps me a lot as I teach DUI classes 4 or 5 weekends in a reminds me to start fresh with every class and has really made a difference.  I hadn't looked at it that way.  So your gift has been passed on to many! By the way, I've forgotten about everything I learned on doing web pages (a different instructor), but I remember a lot about PowerPoint that you taught me!  You're doing something right!!! - Dr. Colleen Carter-Lunceford

Increase application and attention/retention. Learn the Office® Suite like never before. Through my experience and many positions I can relate the material to your position and how the Office product fits. Because of my style and humor, I appeal to many learning types and help you stay awake in class and remember the material after class.

Functionality and Flexibility

Application! Application! Application! Unlike traditional introductory through advanced levels of learning, my Office courses are based on experience and using the products functionally. Functional education and relevance to career positions increases attention and retention rates dramatically and my enthusiastic style complements the strong content. Your organization will be able to accomplish tasks and functions without suffering (too much) stress and perform "advanced" operations with ease.  These courses increase productivity and decreases fear of hitting the wrong button.  The suite of Office offerings cover a wide range of topics, appeals to a wide range of skill sets, and contatins every level from introduction/basic through advanced/expert.

I am flexible in the scheduling of classes and offer half day, full day classes, and lunch and learn sessions. We will design a custom fit for your organization. Some courses are offered at Emory University's Center for Lifelong Learning, Georgia Center for Nonprofits, other colleges, and organizations.
