Video Tutorials to Learn Microsoft Office Tools to Get Ready for Your Next Presentations

Have you ever wondered how to deliver your message is fascinating way? Making your delivery stunning will make your message to be better accepted by your audience, will make you look professional and will give you opportunity to stand out from the crowd. There is a stereotype about presentation as one person delivering a lecture to the large group of people. Reality of today’s business is very different. Most of the business presentations are done either 1-1 or to the small group of decision makers Due to high travel costs most of the presentations are done using conference calls and screen sharing software Some of the advice I was getting, when searching for answers on how to improve my presentation skills was not relevant to presentation delivery channels I was using. In today’s world people work remote and get connected through technology. Some of the advice that was good for presentations done in person for large audiences . But presenting on stage is just one of the channels where you communicate your message, since lot of time you work with people you never see (i.e. offshore teams) and you are being asked to deliver a presentation to reach everyone There are multiple channels I use to deliver my message: Presenting to the large audience in the lecture hall Presenting 1-1 to decision maker Presenting in the conference room to small group of people Presenting on the phone with screen sharing Presenting to the people I never met on the phone (i.e. offshore team, global projects etc) There are so many needs in the life of business professionals to create...

How to get Certified for Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) – Actionable Plan

Today I will be giving an overview of all of the steps you need to follow to successfully meet your goal of getting the Microsoft Office Specialist Certification. This will include the best steps to achieving this goal as well as all costs associated with preparation and certification. I will also be giving a timeline of what to expect so you can better plan for taking these exams. The Microsoft Office Specialist is a great certification to get because the office suite is widely used in all aspects of business and it is less technically challenging than many of the industry standard certifications. First, I will go over the steps you will need to accomplish in order to achieve this certification in a timely and organized manner. The first logical step is to gather materials needed and schedule the exams themselves. As far as materials go I highly recommend picking up a study guide for each test (more on these later). Once you have your study materials acquired it is time to schedule the exams themselves. There are five different exams to get the Microsoft Office Specialist certification, one for each program in the office suite. I would recommend scheduling your exam ten weeks out as to give you time to fully prepare for the exams, also keep in mind each exam lasts 90 minutes so it will be a full eight-hour day. I live in the Milwaukee area making my closest testing center New Horizons located on 15700 w. Bluemound Road (844.745.3983). The next step in my project plan is to prepare for the exams. I have planned...

Becoming Microsoft Office Certified (MOS Specialist) in 2018

The economy is ever changing before our very eyes – for some of us, we may have at one point had a very nice paying full time job with benefits – enough money to support a whole family on one income… and for some of us, this was done without any higher education.  Sadly, however, this is quickly becoming a thing of the past.  Times change, and if you don’t keep up with them, then you are bound to end up getting left behind. In times like this, your best course of action is to reconsider careers – with the looming threat of automation growing, there is no longer much security in a manufacturing job, and on top of that, automation stands to make the need for human workers doing certain tasks totally obsolete.  It’s a worrying matter for many of us, but it doesn’t need to be.  In this post, I will tell you a great way to jump start a brand new career – and best of all, this is one career you don’t have to worry about losing your job to a robot or AI anytime soon. I’m talking about getting into computers and support here, but namely, I’ll be talking about getting certified as a Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS).  At this point, just about all of us are at least a bit familiar with this suite.  Certainly at some point, and likely often for quite a number of us, we’ve used some of the programs included – Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access, to name a few. Consider past experiences when using Office – you’ve likely...
