I have been catching up on the last couple of Episodes of the Windows Weekly Podcast by Paul Thurrott. Found the software tips very useful, particulary Ribbon Hero 2, Clippy’s Second Chance. This is a free learning game by Microsoft – aimed at end users having trouble moving from the Office 2003 interface to the ribbon. So I have downloaded, installed and started playing it. Its fun! Recommended for recalcitrant ribbon users.
Please complete the simple form below and I will send you a link to download a four page guide to Applying Numbering to Headings One to Three and Paragraphs (as you might use in a legal environment) using Word 2010.
While I am a fan of the Security Now podcast for Steve Gibson’s in depth, detailed, geek oriented analysis of security issues, it does have tips for end users. The lastest is the free Microsoft Security Scanner, which is an on demand tool for detecting and removing malware.
This doesn’t replace your normal anti-malware suite, it is a tool you would download (only 70MB) from time to time and run an extra security check.
As a trainer working for Training Providers my view of the World was that I provided the best trainer I could and the Training Provider would look after the process of selling to clients.
My world view has changed and I started to get interested in the Sales Process because:
I wanted to be sure I was helping to generate repeat business
I increasingly find myself accompanying Sales staff to meetings with Clients to help turn training needs into courses and other activities
So I felt I needed to understand the process better. As I have been working on re-building my business I have realised that this understanding is essential.
So via ITUNES I found the Advanced Selling Podcast by Bill Caskey and Brian Neale. While the intended audience is sales people, I think any contractor will find value in their problem solving approach. The podcast is based around listener submitted questions.
