This isn’t just computer training. It’s real-world, reality-based workflow processing that helps you actually be MORE productive with Outlook, instead of wasting hours every day playing with it. I estimate most people know 10-20% of the capacities of Outlook. Even you Outlook experts will be shocked by what you don’t know you don’t know!

These are previously recorded webinars. The “live” webinars do not take questions, so this is an identical experience to attending “live.” You receive the recording and a workbook to accompany each webinar, with detailed screen shots and instructions. This is not PowerPoint! It is a real-time demonstration of my actual Outlook software, where you’ll follow along with your workbook step-by-step and then go implement what we’ve done on your system.

NOTE: Some of the features presented require the use of Microsoft Exchange Server and may not function the same way with POP servers.

Each video is one hour in length. To order, or to inquire about bulk orders, email [email protected].
