MS365 Demystified was well worth the investment. All material was relevant to my practice and has helped me to stay organized and complete tasks on time. I wasn't aware of all of the MS365 features that work in sync with each other to streamline procedures. Features I am utilizing now are definitely helping me as I grow my business.. Thank you Cathy, for your expertise in all things Microsoft!

"Cathy was a great teacher and encouraged all of us to think about how we can use our newfound knowledge to better our business. She was also great at explaining (sometimes a few times) when we would forget. Now that the course is over and I have started the change process, I am still thinking on a different level than prior to the course."

"Cathy is an amazing instructor with an immense knowledge of M365 and all of its different areas. She provides specified responses to all our unique situations. Her training has decreased my stress by knowing my clients' information will be safe and secure in Sharepoint and that I can keep all my client information on all devices to be viewed when needed."

"Cathy shares a wealth of experience and knowledge about Microsoft and how to implement it into your business. Part of the course is a weekly one-on-one to allow open discussion about your business. She is very professional, highly confidential and very approachable. I would highly recommend any of the courses and/or insight that Cathy offers."

"Microsoft 365 Business for Accounting Professionals teaches us all the missing pieces about the Microsoft 365 subscription and provides insight on how we may use them in a bookkeeping/accounting field. That said, the course contents are transferrable to all industries and even personal organization. And it's all integrated!"

"The M365 training by Cathy is worth the time and investment. Cathy's knowledge of each module saved me the time it would take to learn on my own. I like how the apps in M365 are integrated to help with my workflow and keep on track of the schedule to get the client's work done."
- EJ Schiiler, Citadel Business Services -

Cathy is a great teacher, very approachable, knowledgeable and experienced. She has helped me implement and streamline my business. This will help me be more efficient and save money by using fewer apps and integrating the ones already included with my Microsoft account.

Cathy is an amazing teacher with a high degree of technical skill in M365.
