Use your Devices and Software Programs to improve your productivity and time management


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 widely available electronic tools and software programs to manage your time more effectively. (Microsoft Outlook and OneNote)

So much of our work these days comes to us from emails. Being able to use available electronic tools to manage your workload and improve your time management is becoming more and more critical in today’s fast pace working environment.


The move to paperless is definitely here and we can help you embrace it!

You can save yourself valuable time by learning how to use both of these software programs to their absolute potential. And because they are both Microsoft programs, there are many features where both programs can work with each other to help you manage your time and your workload. In this training, we show you how to do that!


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.

We combine the best features of our Productivity with MS Outlook program and our Productivity using OneNote  program into one powerful half day training program that will totally transform the way you manage your workload and manage your time in the future.
