See the Potential in Your People | Priscilla Bahrey
In today's business environment, organizations are being forced to do more with less - less money, less resources, less people. In project-driven organizations, we must protect project teams from influences that negatively affect their productivity. How can we focus on building the capability and capacity of our team and support them to achieve their potential while accomplishing project objectives?

Could incorporating Project Management processes into your work actually save you time and help you to accomplish more?

Open your mind to the possibility of approaching work in a different way and ensuring checks and balances along the way while benefiting from best practices and decades of experience from the project management discipline.
What is a SharePoint Intranet? | Colin Lucas Rider

Outlook Time Management | Rachel Wolters
We all have the same amount of time every day. Using that time well is fundamental to effective work practice.

Excel Data List Management - Advanced Filtering | Rachel Wolters
Filtering data in a spreadsheet means to allow only certain data to be displayed. This function is useful when you want to focus only on specific information in a large dataset or table; however, using an Advanced Filter in Excel allows you to extract specific items to a different worksheet. In this session we’ll explore how to use complex criteria with an Advanced Filter, allowing you to go beyond the functionality of AutoFilters and extract the data you need quickly and efficiently.
