“This is one of the best webinar’s I’ve attended in a long time. The only thing is I wish it was longer. There was so much more tips I wanted to visually see. Even is this was an one day seminar I would attend. I have submitted this information to my HR department to see if we can get a training session setup of the staff because we just upgraded to office 2013.”
