Southwest FL ASTD Learning Event

 Practicing Good Office Hygiene

The things you think you know, but we bet you don’t!

Join ASTD of Southwest Florida on Wednesday, July 16th at Keiser University for a unique program that will start promptly at 11:30 a.m.

Our parents told us that every day before we leave the house that we must wash our face, brush our teeth, and comb our hair. By following their instructions, over time we developed core practices for good personal hygiene.

Using personal hygiene as a metaphor and extending it to include personal habits in cleanliness of practice generally, we might ask, “Are there core hygiene practices that we should be following every day as we work with our primary software tool?” The answer is yes, particularly if we want to be more productive and not embarrassed because we practice bad Office Hygiene habits.

This is an interactive presentation and demonstration about Microsoft Office hygiene. Learn how to use it every day appropriately and effectively while increasing personal productivity. The focus of this learning event is on Microsoft Word with brief references to Outlook and PowerPoint.

Topics Covered
  • Setting up right – get to know your options, what you should be using and why
  • Formatting – being direct or doing it right and with style
  • Bullet proof your lists – the do’s and don'ts of numbered and bulleted lists
  • Headers and Footers – keeping it right from head to toe
  • Fields and Bookmarks – their mysteries and magic
  • Macros, Templates, Auto Text & Autocorrects – the building blocks of productivity

Participants are encouraged, but not required, to bring their personal computers so they can view and begin applying what they learn from the session. The material covered is applicable to locally installed versions of Microsoft Office 2007, 2010, or 2013 for the PC and Microsoft Office 2011 for the Mac.

I am looking forward to this highly interactive learning event.  Join us, won’t you?
