On Saturday, March 25, Editors British Columbia presents two offerings of the half-day seminar “How to Be the Laziest Editor Possible: Maximizing the Tools in Microsoft Word.” The morning session (10 am to 1 pm) is for PC users and the afternoon session (2 pm to 5 pm) is for Mac users.
Microsoft Word can be simultaneously the simplest and most frustrating piece of computer software editors use daily. During this half-day workshop, you’ll learn how to make this essential tool work better for you, saving your clients money and yourself a hassle as you streamline the editing process.
Join certified trainer Michael Ouchi as he shares tips and tricks for making the most of this common program. He will explain the changes to and newer features of Word, and participants—through practical, hands-on lessons—will sharpen their skills and increase their Microsoft Word knowledge to become the “laziest editors possible.” Visit the registration page for further details.
This workshop is geared toward all editors who feel that there must be a better or easier way to use this software. Whether you’re a beginner or a more advanced user, Michael will adapt the session to meet your needs, answer your questions and illuminate what you didn’t know you didn’t know.
Michael Ouchi is a Master Instructor in Office and a Microsoft Certified Trainer with over 20 years’ experience teaching, training and developing workflow solutions for his clients. In addition, he is a storyteller, children’s entertainer and published author.
