Laura GB

With over 20 years experience in the IT industry, Laura brings not only a wealth of knowledge and experience, but a long list of light hearted anecdotal tales. She has helped users break free of the mainframe green screen terminals to today’s modern pc set ups and hand held devices. Laura can boast the training of users in the early versions of the Microsoft office suite, right through to the specialist applications such as MS Project, Visio, Access, InfoPath and SharePoint. This wealth of experience brings a refreshing task oriented approach to her consultancy and training.

That refreshing approach is clearly evident in her portfolio of successful projects. A portfolio which includes success with solutions for databases, early macros, VBA, workflows and most recently SharePoint. A wide range of clients at all levels and sectors gives Laura experience to scope new projects, provide solutions that meet users needs and deliver scope for future innovation.

A philosophy of teaching people for today and tomorrow means Laura always leaves her clients feeling confident in the future and effective with the immediate solution. From the MD or board right through to the end user. Laura gives equal attention and importance to every stage of a project and it adoption. This is never more evident than recent SharePoint projects for a large retail outlet, team sites training and her work with developing a learning management system.

Recently Laura spoke at SharePoint Saturday UK 2014 on Workflows. Here are the posts to support that presentation
