Learn Productivity Tips That’ll Save You Time, Money and Stress

Just the mention of Excel creates fear in many Office Professionals. Some say Microsoft Word is just for boring letters. And PowerPoint is just old fashioned!

All of these Office products have become staples for business for one good reason. They all do their jobs exceedingly well but only when you scratch beneath the surface. In one day, we will be looking at over 300 tips. But dont panic! Everything is contained in the comprehensive handouts, step-by-step, and in Plain English.

This session is delivered by Paul Pennant, Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional). Paul has dedicated over two decades to empowering Assistants and other Office Professionals through expert guidance, specialising in Microsoft Outlook, Teams & the broader M365 suite.

This accolade is awarded by Microsoft to exceptional community leaders and technical experts and is a testament to Paul’s deep expertise and commitment. It recognises those who demonstrate outstanding contributions and influence within the Microsoft ecosystem. Paul’s extensive experience includes delivering high-impact training sessions both locally and internationally, firmly establishing him as a sought-after voice in the realm of Microsoft technologies.

This course gave me the confidence to tackle Excel and the feeling that I can speak the Excel language!
Paul delivered a PowerPoint course to a group of 11 mainly intermediate colleagues. He did so in his usual exuberant, fun and very informative style. This was the second time Paul had carried out a training session (the first being on Outlook) and we all ended the day, having not only learnt lots (the short cuts are especially useful) but eager to try out all the hints and tips Paul had shared with us. Our only problem now is to decide which package we ask Paul to train in next time!
Thanks for the Excel Workshop yesterday. It was really helpful and to my relief you were straight to the point and easy to understand!
