What are you missing? Save Time with my Excel Tips & Tricks

Many people think they know how to use Microsoft Office, but they miss so many of the features that make these programs so useful. Take Excel for example, did you know that:

1 button will create an instant chart?
2 clicks will automatically sum up a table of data?
3 minutes is enough time to run a PivotTable report for every month of the year

STOP wasting your time. Learn how to use your tools properly. Why not book just 1 hour of tips and tricks training to try it for yourself? I can deliver it online at a time convenient to you and if you're not satisfied I will give you your money back.

There's no need to hesitate.. let me address your concerns

Over the past few months I have been addressing your concerns one by one. Is this what’s holding you back?

Concern #1: You don’t quite understand how the training works and if it would be suitable for you or your company.
Solution#1: Book a free demonstration via Zoom. It will only take a couple of minutes and I’ll show you just how easy and interactive the training can be.

Concern#2: A tight company budget or lack of personal funding
Solution#2: You will be surprised how much I can fit in to just one or two hours of training. Gaining the right skills will actually save you time and money. Plus I provide discounts for new clients!

Concern#3: You don’t have enough time
Solution#3: I can deliver the training at practically any time and you can receive training from anywhere with internet access. Take the training in your lunch break, late at night or on the weekend. The training does not have to be taken all at once you can take it one hour at a time.

Concern#4: It will be boring
Solution#4: My training is fully interactive, I will teach you by walking you through a serious of practical activities. I will give you the desired knowledge without the nerdy lingo, and the skills without endless hours in a stale classroom.

Concern#5: The Training won’t be relevant to you or your role
Solution#5: Unlike most training offerings out there Savvy Training is completely tailored to your needs. You are able to choose which topics you want/need to learn - so you only learn what is relevant to you. 

I hope this puts your mind at ease. If you have any other concerns that you would like addressed please feel free to let me know.

Presenting: The Savvy Training Money Back Guarantee

I’ve been running my own business for two years now. I’ve always believed in my product but after two years of successful online training sessions and numerous happy clients (both private and corporate) I have even more confidence.

That is why I have decided to offer a money back guarantee for all courses beginning in March 2015. If you take training and are not happy with what you have learnt I will issue a full refund.

"I can honestly say it is the best $50 I have spent in a long time" - Savvy Write Up

I am delighted to have a raving review featured on the Collaboration Works Marketing website, read below or click here:

"I have used Microsoft Outlook every day for years. Okay, let’s be honest, decades. I set up folders and rules, delay delivery and do other fancy stuff. I would go as far as to call myself an Outlook power user.

But recently I had one specific calendar issue I just could not figure out so l decided to invest in one hour of professional Outlook training from Savvy Training. I had done Excel training with Letitia in the past and was very impressed with what I learned, but I was not surprised since I knew there was a lot about Excel that I was missing.

I honestly wondered if she could fill one hour with things I did not already know in Outlook. But the hour sped by and I still think there are more functions I can look into on my own.

My favorite Outlook tips were related to:

·         Using QuickParts

·         Adding screenshots without using copy/paste

·         Overlaying calendars

·         Sending sent email to a “follow up” folder.

·         Setting up advanced categories

All the training is done online via Skype, so I was using my own computer, sharing my screen and clicking around in my own live Outlook data during the training. And yes, I did get an answer to that stubborn calendaring issue.

I was amazed at how much I learned about Outlook in just one hour.  I can honestly say it is the best $50 I have spent in a long time and I am already planning to schedule training for Microsoft Word.

I think most of us get used to the programs we use every day and we don’t even consider getting training. But one hour of training can save you one hundred hours in productivity over time.

I would highly recommend that everyone schedule some Microsoft Office training with:
