From Word to PowerPoint - the art of creating a slide deck from a document

How to create gorgeous and cool Slide Deck Presentations from a simple Word document (without the rigmarole of repeated ‘copy and paste’)

Do You REALLY Want to ‘Copy and Paste’ EVERY Time They Ask You to Do This?

You know the scenario.

A client  or your Executive sends you a Word document and says: “Can you work your magic on this and turn it into a presentation?”

And your heart sinks a little.

Yes, of course you can turn those pages into slides for PowerPoint. You’re a star... but you know how long it’s going to take you. And there’s one repetitive bit that just feels a bit of a mind-numbing chore.

Copy and paste. Copy and paste. Copy and paste. Copy and paste. Copy and paste.

And repeat until you’ve transferred it all over from Word.

Time-consuming and not that exciting.

But it doesn’t have to be that way...

There’s a creative shortcut.

It speeds things up, saves you time and makes the process a lot more fun.

Let me show you how. This 90-minute training gives you everything you need to turn a simple Word document into a slide deck as cool, clear and jazzy as a spring gig in the park.

You’ll get back the time you spend on this course with the first project you handle, using what you now know.

Every time after that you’ll get the job done better and faster. Your clients and Executives will think you’re either a genius or a magician. They’ll wonder how you managed it (but it can be our little secret).

This is a short, easy-to-follow, training but packs a punch when it comes to content.

In this course you will discover in Microsoft Word how to:

    • Apply, create and modify document Styles

The Magic is Already Out There

When I shared this knowledge and training at the Exec Sec Tech virtual event, the audience went ‘Wow!’. When you take this course, I think you’ll be the same. It really does feel like you’re waving a magic wand at your computer.

I’m not promising you’ll be able to ditch ‘copy and paste’ forever but knowing how to create a smart deck of slides from a simple Word document will make your life so much easier.

Find out for yourself and invest in your future with this step-by-step training. You’ll wonder how and why you never knew about this VA wizardry before.

Hello, I am Shelley Fishel.

Congratulations on wanting to improve your skills. You are in very safe hands.

Congratulations on wanting to improve your skills in MS Office and Microsoft 365, and get more done in less time.

You are in very safe hands.

I have been teaching people at all levels of business how to use Microsoft Office for more than 20 years - and stay up to date with the latest advances and changes.

As the founder of Tomorrow’s VA, my mission is to empower busy VA’s, PA’s and EA’s to get more done in less time - and become a Superhero for their clients and bosses.

Independently Checked for Quality

It’s a strange world these days because anyone with a smartphone or computer can claim to be a ‘trainer’ or ‘expert’ in this or that. Many people might know a topic well but not so many can teach this stuff really well.

Rest assured, the quality of my training is independently assessed and approved by the Learning and Performance Institute (LPI), of which I am a Fellow.

My LPI certifications are CDOL (Certified Designer of Online Learning) and COLF (Certified Online Learning Facilitator).

Because I’ve been doing this for so long and seem to know “all there is to know” on the subject, some clients call me the ‘Queen of Microsoft Office’. More people today know me as ‘the MS Office Maestro’.

I’m an author of many books, podcaster, blogger, contributor to Executive Secretary magazine, entrepreneur, IT trainer and business owner. I’m also a mother, a grandmother and wife. Family is important to me and I know what it’s like to juggle work and kids.

Down to Earth Essentials

You won’t find any airs and graces with me. Just clear down-to-earth training, support, coaching and advice - with a bit of fun thrown in. I’m here for the VA, PA, EA and other professional who wants to work smarter with Office and 365.

It gives me a real thrill and immense satisfaction to hear from so many students how they have improved their productivity, organisation and business as a result of my help.

Be a Smarter-Working VA

It’s time to invest in yourself and gain the skills to help you get more done in less time.

When you demonstrate your mastery of handling tasks and solving clients’ headaches, it raises your reputation and profile. You can enjoy a more flexible and sustainable business - and charge more.

This training is designed so you can be a Superhero. Invest in yourself today...
