Course Outline

To increase productivity, you and your team have been given BlackBerrys. Studies show that BlackBerry’s can help save time. But as you've experienced first-hand the opposite seems to be true.  You know there are probably shortcuts and tips to help you save time, but what are they?   As the person responsible for maximizing productivity, you need to be able to take full advantage of your blackberry. This 2 hour accessible and comprehensive seminar will empower you how to turn your Blackberry into the productivity boosting tool you know if can be.

In an ideal world you and your team would grasp the wide range of Blackberry features as soon as the device comes out of its box.  Instead you end up hanging up on clients, searching the entire menu just to reply to a message, taking unnecessary steps to access voice mail, and wasting precious time re-typing the same phrases into messages and emails.  You know this can all be automated—but how? The 500 page manuals, with their confusing terminology and ineffective illustrations, are not much help.  What you really need is an expert who understands the best practices.  Up until now that's been tough to find - there's no one on your team with the expertise, and hiring a consultant costs a small fortune.   Finding affordable training from someone with the experience to help is difficult and time consuming.  

Lucky for you the search is over.  This seminar will team you up with one of Canada's foremost experts on using Blackberry's effectively.  She will guide you through the different functions of your phone and teach you best practices for increasing productivity.  Not only that, but it will only take two hours and the seminar is delivered remotely allowing you or your distributed team to attend from the comfort of their home or office.  And best of all - it's priced right!

This webinar will increase your productivity, decrease your wireless bills and reduce the number of calls to your support desk.

  • Time saving tips allowing you to focus on your job and not on how your BlackBerry works

Could have used some more breaks. Other than that she was an excellent trainer and was very helpful on helping us with our Sharepoint developement. The trainer conducted the training in our office so that section should be N/A

The facility and start time were our fault (terrible, but I can't put that as it should not reflect on the vendor!) - incredibly, they offered to host us for the second course. The instructor (contract employee for GK) was hilarious, incredibly knowledgeable and quickly showed tips and tricks that were previously unknown to the students. It did not fit the original request, but was completely valuable. There were no handouts, but we didn't need them for what we were doing.

The course maybe could have more hands on training exercises. For example maybe watch a meeting in progress and have the participants take minutes of the video. As a group they would discuss that content would be included in the minutes.

Overall the course is useful however the course outline needs to be more structured in my opinion. The instructor should also be a little bit more knowledgeable in regards to specifics about MS Project as there is a very high level of experience with the software expected of them.

We would have liked if the course covered Outlook as well as the other Office programs. In our first 2 online classes, there were problems with the audio and the teacher would sometimes cut out, or fast forward, and she could barely hear us at all so all quesitons had to be typed in the chat.
