A day in the life of a typical (unproductive) Outlook user.

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?”

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!
