The COVID-19 Crisis, in just 100 days, changed the way we think and feel about the world around us. Recent world events have brought forward the need for employees to have access to their documents, files, work tools, etc., as well as their managers and colleagues, without being able to go to their office. Working remotely has currently become the ‘norm’ across the globe. This has led to new concerns that businesses have, about how to collaborate and work effectively in such situations.

The time for rapid, highly-informed decisions to keep your business working is NOW! It is the time to harness the power of ‘Teams’. Microsoft® Teams provides you with an open, digital environment that makes work integrated, visible, and accessible, across the board. With Microsoft® Teams, every concerned team member will always feel included, and aware of what is going on.

This short, online course is ideal for those who want to get started, and take advantage of the key options in Microsoft® Teams – the communication and teamwork hub of Microsoft® Office 365. This one-day programme covers the beginner to intermediate level features of Microsoft® Teams. It will help delegates get up to speed about the core business messaging, calling, video meetings, and file sharing capabilities of MS Teams.
