Ready to make your life easier?

To eliminate email overwhelm? Have clear priorities ready for action? Stay focused on the task at hand?



What's in it for you?

Most people – maybe you too - use Outlook only for email and meeting management. They use their Inbox as a To-Do list. They spend hours every day in their Inbox reacting to other people’s priorities instead of their own. And they believe this is just how life at the office is. How wrong they are. It does not have to be like this. After doing this course...

  • … you will save up to 40 minutes every day. And stop wasting away one month every year.

  • … be in control of your Inbox. No more overwhelm.

  • … transform chaos into order. You are in charge.

  • … leave your desk with the day’s work done.

  • … get into your bed at night with a smile on your face because everything you wanted to do that day has been done. No more “I’ve been so busy today – but what I actually achieve?”

What's in it for your business?

Most companies who have already invested in MS Office hardly ever see the full return on that investment. MS Outlook is one of the most frequently used pieces of software. It is also probably one of the most underutilised. Implement “Outlook Productivity: The New Way To Get And Stay Even More Productive” to deliver these business results.

  • Leverage the investment already made in MS Outlook.

  • Save time and money worth one month's payroll of Outlook users - every year.

  • Employees have less unnecessary negative stress.

  • Improved communication.

  • Crisper decision-making.

  • Improved, more efficient workflow management.

As the voicemail message on his cell phone says:” If I can’t take your call I am either in a workshop or out cycling!”

Duncan’s industrial engineering background and his love of the “ooh” and “aahhh” moments when people learn a really cool trick in MS Outlook, are his inspiration and motivation in helping people use their technology in ways that make them more productive.

Was there life before the Internet, cell phones and gadgets? Duncan’s glad he missed it!

    Self-study takes as long as individuals want it to take. The content remains available for 6 months.
