BBO PA Network ONLINE – PAul Pennant ‘Microsoft’ & Louise Webster-20/05/21

20 May @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for: ‘Microsoft Tips’ with PAul Pennant & ‘Making the Connection’ with Louise Webster LIVE from ‘Corazón del Río’ Spanish restaurant

You are invited to attend Bucks, Berks & Oxon (BBO) PA Network’s virtual event hosted LIVE from ‘Corazón del Río’ Spanish cuisine restaurant in Bourne End, Buckinghamshire.

We will be welcoming Founder and Principal Trainer of Today’s PA, PAul Pennant with his keynote ‘Microsoft Top Tips’

An enormous number of us, PAs, use the world’s most popular software Microsoft Office on a daily basis. Yet only a few of us can truly call ourselves masters. We tend to use familiar features and functions and ignore the rest.

Yes, we can send a group email but did you know you can also personalise each message through mail merge.

Did you ever think of re-branding your presentations and documents in the exact colours of your company logo?

And do we simply leave Excel out of the equation because we feel it is really only for accountants?

Microsoft Office Certified Expert Paul promises to make you love Microsoft a little more again. You will learn how to use it effectively to produce amazing professional documents, spreadsheets and presentations, and with the use of our breath-taking shortcuts, it needn’t take you hours! With cool tricks in Teams and OneNote too.

“There is simply no greater trainer out there than Paul Pennant. I brought him to Facebook today & he blew everyone away. Book him now.” E Marshall, FACEBOOK

“It has been great, especially the Word session today – esp. things with regards to the setup and formatting: footers, different formats in same file, quick tools, etc. Already using some of it and made myself a nice template.” TATE & LYLE

We will also welcome Louise Webster from Beyond The School Run with her keynote ‘Making The Connection’

– Connecting with yourself

– Connecting on social media

– Making the connection at the school-gates

– Connecting with your skills

– How to make the connection via creating and being part of communities
