Client Feedback – Productivity with MS Outlook & OneNote

Hi Geoff, thanks for the email follow up. I am using One Note every day, and I have nearly cleared out my Outlook as well! Thank you for the great training. – Sue, Youth Worker, Local Government, Melbourne. March 2020

Every staff member who uses a computer should do this training. Geoff’s teaching style is fantastic. Live examples were great! – Joanne, Local Government Melbourne, Sept 2019

Very useful for all regular users across the organisation. Need to roll this out more broadly to embed those productivitytips and tools in daily work life! – Lucas, Local Government, Melbourne, September 2019

Hi Geoff, thanks for the follow up. I’ve moved over to the new world order and I’m loving it! I’ve kept my Outlook set up as per your training and I’m sticking with it! It’s great – it has made such a massive difference to the way I operate…I’ve set up my “Completed” email box and managed to reduce my million-and-one now redundant email folders to only 8, slashed my obsolete task list and even managed to keep the list of emails in my inbox to only those that fit in the viewing pane! And I haven’t been tempted (not even once ?) to use the email reading/preview pane again…(that’s a big one for me!)

I spoke to the rest of my colleagues in my team and told them they *have* to do this training – it’s a game changer. Thanks again for all your advice. It was such a great session that’s had a huge impact on my productivity. –  Claire, Senior Planner, Local Government Melbourne, May 2019


Thank you so much Geoff – I think you have changed my life. I came into your workshop feeling incredibly out of control with over 800 emails in my inbox. Tonight I’m going home with 9 – after I delete this one you just sent me!!!! I have saved the links in my reading box and have scheduled time next week to read them! OneNote is a game changer for me too – I hadn’t used it before and have since had a session with the guru here and am feeling completely in control. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I know we will see a lot more of you around council in the months to come. – Leanne, Manager Local Government, June 2018

Really useful… this training will help me a lot in my work. Thanks so much! – Karina, EPA Victoria, April 2018

Really fantastic training course Geoff. It should be compulsory for all Surface Pro Users! Hoping this training is rolled out to all staff in all regions. – Megan,  Team Leader Compliance Strategy and Support. EPA Victoria April 2018

Hi Geoff,  thanks again for delivering this training to my team. Personally I have found the training extremely helpful in managing my Outlook calendar and inbox. I have restructured the way my outlook appears with more focus on the task list, which is helping me manage workload much better than before. I am ‘living by’ the 4D process right now in terms of emails and am loving it!! Its allowing me to better manage the hundreds of emails I get in a day. The training you delivered has really changed the way I do things at work and I no longer feel ruled by my emails! – Emma – Regional Manager, EPA Victoria.  Sept 2017
