Microsoft Office is the most important software program used in workplaces across the globe.

nesma has launched a new suite of courses to help you use this software to your advantage!

More than 1.2 billion people from 140 countries use it in 107 different languages. The software allows businesses to carry out a huge variety of activities, including presenting their ideas on PowerPoint, keeping track of their stock on Excel and managing their calendar on Outlook.

The Chief Marketing Officer at Microsoft UK is due to deliver a keynote speech at the 8th Annual CIM Northern Conference in Durham on 15th May. Scott Allen will be showing just how important using Microsoft Office is to your business and how catching the attention of your online audience is now even harder than it has ever been before. He will explain how having the right skills to make eye-catching content for your customers is vital.

While Microsoft Office is the most important tool in business, the majority of its users are self-taught, meaning that they are unable to correctly use all of the functions available and that they don’t know about all of the time-saving keyboard shortcuts that are available. nesma are here to help, with a selection of 3-hour Microsoft Office workshops being held over the next few months.

These will show just how crucial digital skills are to the PR and marketing profession, as well as how easy it is to increase your overall productivity using Excel, Word, PowerPoint and Outlook. You will learn how to increase efficiency, improve communication, automate everyday tasks, streamline processes, enhance collaboration, increase quality and save time. These skills are all incredibly important when working in a fast-paced PR and marketing environment, as well as in a much wider range of businesses.

With over 15 years of experience in providing software skills training, Chris Steele will be delivering these high-quality and bespoke workshops. A previous Microsoft Office course attendee explained that “the trainer knew everything about PowerPoint and had great communication skills”, while another stated that the session “made a real difference in how [they] will use Excel going forward”.

If the workshops currently advertised on our calendar don’t quite hit the skills gap you are looking to fill, we can design a personalised course that is perfect for your team, whether it is for a large global company or a small owner managed business. We can even offer any of our one-day workshops, including all of the Microsoft Office skills sessions in-house for groups of 4 or more people. All of these 3-hour workshops are priced at £145 + VAT. If two Microsoft Office sessions are booked at the same time, then they will be discounted to £250 + VAT.

Plus, we can also offer a 10% discount for the second and subsequent delegates who are attending the training from the same company. If you would like to know more about any of these courses or you would like to talk through which of the workshops would be the best one for you, then give us a call on 07734 222 254 or you can email us:
