Why Hire Laura for this Program?

Laura is a Productivity Specialist™ with over twenty-five years of experience developing business processes with the use of technology. She understands the challenges individuals and companies face on a daily basis with the use of Microsoft Outlook and how to organize and retrieve information quickly when needed. In the 1990's Laura was hired by community colleges to teach Microsoft Outlook to employees of corporations. Laura quickly became frustrated with the content of the materials she was asked to teach with and decided to create her own materials and began teaching her own classes. Laura believes that it's not enough to know "HOW" to use specific features of Outlook but that you also need to know "WHY" you must incorporate these techniques into your daily e-mail management practices. Laura's down-to-earth, real-life examples, will quickly help you understand how you can integrate these objectives into your workday so you can increase your productivity.
