This week was extraordinarily busy. Kind of counter-intuitive to begin regular blogging on such a week, but there is no time like the present, eh?
Some of you may be unaware that we offer software training. While we teach classes through a variety of wonderful venues, we also are available for direct hire. This week, we held half day seminars on the new features of Microsoft Office 2010.
Upgrading software is always somewhat traumatic for an organization. Especially when the interface changes dramatically. However, change is inevitable, and there are many new features that make upgrading not only necessary, but desirable. Office 2010 (and by extension, Office 2007 and Office 2013) has a host of cool new features that can both streamline your workflow and bog you down in choices. It’s extremely helpful to have someone who is highly knowledgeable quickly get your staff up to speed on new features, and to give them an overview of functions they may not know exist.
Another part of my busy schedule for the week included several meetings for current projects. Touching base with clients about their projects is a source of joy for me. I love when we can come to an agreement on what they need to do for their business, and I get clarification on the path I need to take to get there.
For those of you who are unaware, we are deeply involved with Different Strokes Performing Arts Collective here in Asheville. The next show being produced is “Sisters,” a two-person play that addresses issues of education, class, and colorism. Yours truly is one of the people in the show, and I am excited beyond belief to be onstage again! For more details, visit the Different Strokes website. Tickets are on sale now.
