Alabama/Georgia IAAP Branch Event

IAAP Branch Logo SmallI’m honored to speak at the inaugural Branch Events for IAAP at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta. I’ll put on my education show in both technology and soft skills training on Office 365/2013 and Communications in the Digital Age. Simply because our communication tools enable us to communicate faster doesn’t necessarily mean we communicate better. I’ll teach traditional and new age communications in all forms – verbal, written, presentations, and more plus I’ll include tips and tricks on how technology helps in being a better communicator, including grammar (get rid of passive voice, don’t split those infinitives, don’t end a sentence with a preposition, and more). With Office 365/2013 we learn the latest and greatest features of Office 2013 and the wonderful, magic powers of Office 365. Enjoy!

Ready to Excel?! Certifications for Excel 2010 and 2013 – March to Success! Let’s Excel!

I have had several requests for 2010 and 2013 Excel MOS webinars. So let’s plan Excel 2010 on Tuesday, February 24, at 7:00 PM EST and Excel 2013 in March. We will work with important formulas and functions in Excel that we are likely to be tested on the exam. I will teach about the syntax of formulas and functions and the different reference types and offer best practices for creating and editing formulas and functions. Then we will take a practice 2010 Excel core exam through GMetrix. If any one has passed an Excel 2010 core exam, let me know; everyone would love to hear of your experience and advice.

Here’s the link for the February 24 MOS Webinar.

In March, we march on to Excel 2013/365 and the more difficult project based exam for 2013 Excel core. In the future get ready for the All Powerful and All Difficult project based Excel Expert 2013 which is unbelievable in the power of new Pivot Tables and new functions. I have asked Melissa Esquibel, MCT and Master at the 2013 level (and beyond to infintity!), to help us through the exam and preparation. .

The future is NOW! Do you know 75% of organizations will convert to Office 2013/Office 365 by next year, based on my IT and HR contacts? As an example. I have one nonprofit and one  government agency as clients, that are converting to Office 2013/Office 365 from Office 2007 and 2010  in March for which I am very grateful.   Practice, Prepare, and Plan for the future of Microsoft Office with these webinars for 2010 and 2013.

So put on your math hat as we concentrate on formulas and functions. Let’s excel with the MOS 2010 and 2013 Excel exams.
