I recently conducted a highly appreciated session at a CIO event in Mumbai. This 45 minute video is a MUST WATCH for every CIO and IT professional who is involved in effective utilization of Office and Office 365.

When you click on this link, the video will try to play from OneDrive. But it WILL NOT PLAY. Click the Download button on that page, download it locally and then run it in full screen mode. If you like it, please share it with your colleagues and friends.

Many training programs and books are divided into two varieties – Basic and Advanced. This classification gets ingrained in the mind of users who have neither attended any training nor read any book.
