Technology Tips, Being Accessible, Making Better Decisions

In this session you will learn about some ways to improve your use of software you probably use every day. These tips will help you be more efficient and even make better decisions with the information you have. With the trend towards subscription based products, we don’t always have time to learn about new features, new programs, or new enhancements. It is also important to make our data more accessible and inclusive for everyone. This session will focus on tips around PowerPoint, Word, Microsoft Project/Project Online, Office 365, and Windows 10. Tips from the audience will be welcome as well.

Gain insight into the how and why of each feature for business from an awarded Microsoft Project Most Valuable Professional (MVP).
