Vickie’s “why” is empowering (and entertaining) business users to work less AND better by using the technology at their fingertips. This helps employees meet critical deadlines and deliver better results, while their company experiences a boost in productivity AND morale, PLUS a higher ROI for their technology investment. Whew! That was a mouthful, but critical to Vickie’s mission. One of the biggest pains she experiences when she is home with her family or when she wakes up in the middle of the night is the knowledge that someone else is stuck at their computer trying to meet a deadline because they simply don’t know about that one button or feature that would have allowed them to get home hours ago. Is that you?
“Your class has changed my life – not just my day, but my life. I’m so at rest right now. I am walking away full of life and knowledge. Finally going to be able to leave work on time to spend with my family because I’m working more efficiently. Thank you!” ~ Victouria Lecoq, Executive Assistant
“I learnt more in 90 minutes of class with Vickie than I did over the 4 months of my post-graduate class.”
