Workshop detail
In our Microsoft Project Smart Skills workshops, we want you to put something in, as well as get something out. As we want you to hone your skills and overcome your pain points, you help us set the agenda for the workshop, bringing your own project data if you wish. Just in case you think your list of burning issues is too small, don’t worry as the additional content we suggest will teach you all the smarts in how to use Microsoft Project more effectively, with plenty of useful tips and tricks as well.

What’s more, as we’ve taught several thousand Project users since 1994, we’re confident that the knowledge and skills we’ve gained since then can be shared to help you get more from your use of Microsoft Project.
