Productivity with Outlook and OneNote

Microsoft Outlook and OneNote Training to boost your productivity


Our Productivity using Microsoft Outlook and OneNote training program is a powerful way to improve your own productivity or that of your team by learning to use both of these programs to manage your workload more effectively.


So much of our work these days comes to us from emails. The ability to use available electronic tools to manage your workload and be more productive is becoming increasingly critical in today’s fast pace working environment. You can save yourself valuable time by learning how to use both of these programs to their absolute potential. And because they are both Microsoft programs, there are many integrated features that can help you manage your workload and your time more effectively.


Throw away your paper notebook!


Well not quite… But, if you’ve never taken electronic meeting notes before, we will show you how easy it is. Once you realise the time savings involved, you’ll rarely pick up you paper notepad again. In our Productivity using Microsoft Outlook and OneNote training, we show you how to do just that!
