Everyone who has to present information in PowerPoint should read this book before they use PowerPoint.
Having used PowerPoint for almost 20 years I found that Beyond Bullet Points reminded me of things I am already doing and gave me some great examples of how I can do things better. If you go through this book you should also look at slide:ology.
I really enjoyed the style of this book and found it easy to read.
Contains some great examples of how not to use PowerPoint.
So Many Functions and So Little Time – A Great Reference Book
As someone who has used Excel for 23 years and training people in Excel for 18 years I thought that I knew Excel well!
I do know Excel very well but this book has blown me away with its explanations of every single function in Excel 2010. I haven’t read every page but the tips and insight into each function is amazing.
I will be using this book as a reference for a long time to come and continue to discover new functions and uses for functions on every read. Highly recommended as a reference book and also a great challange to learn something new for those experienced Excel users out there.
My training session today reminded me of the importance of a few of the fundamentals of training.
Firstly that preparation of your materials makes delivery easier. You cannot train what you don’t know!
Secondly the importance of having enthusiasm for the fact that the things being learnt are relevant to the learners and reminding them of this.
Thirdly that learners saying thank you and that they enjoyed the training course is rewarding and energising to the trainer.
