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

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.


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 our Productivity using Microsoft Outlook and OneNote training, we show you how to do just 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’ve combined the best features of our Productivity with MS Outlook training program and our Productivity using OneNote training program into one powerful Half Day program that will totally transform the way you manage your workload and manage your time in the future.

Client Feedback

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
