Emily Parks to Offer Courses at the Technology Training Solutions Unit of North Carolina State University

According to Dictionary.com, productivity is “the quality, state or fact of being able to generate, create, enhance or bring forth goods and services. Knowing how to get more done in less time and to quickly find what you need is a vital skill to be learned by busy professionals and corporate teams alike.

Are you looking to boost your productivity? If so, it might be time to go back to school… Starting this semester, I'll be teaching at the Technology Training Solutions unit of North Carolina State University. I am honored to be an instructor in the Technology Training Solutions unit at the McKimmon Center for Extension and Continuing Education, where they have a reputation for excellence in continuing education for technology, and I’m excited to share several of my most popular technology workshops, including productivity apps to help busy professionals get more done, boost profitability and aid peace of mind.

Holly Basso, Assistant Director at North Carolina State University, has said, “The Technology Training Solutions at NCSU has provided leading-edge training and certification programs since 1988. We are thrilled to add Emily Parks to our roster of outstanding instructors. Emily brings a new element to our program by offering classes that teach people how to efficiently and effectively use technology to increase productivity and sharpen their business organization skills.” Since I know technology can be overwhelming, I created my business workshops so people can have the best information at their fingertips. No matter if you are a PC- or Mac-user, I will share productivity apps and tips you can implement immediately to increase your efficiency.

Designed to benefit all busy professionals, no matter whether you are new to technology or comfortable with it, whether you are a small business owner or have 30,000 employees and whether you are a Mac-, PC-, Android-, Blackberry-, iPad- or iPhone-based, these workshops will provide ideas to implement for immediate improvements to your output and profitability.
