For those to whom too much of me is a good thing, or to the insatiably curious, I recommend the two Webinars I’ll be doing pretty much back-to-back next Tuesday, October 25. One of these will be for Pearson IT Certification, in my role as IT certification blogger, author, and champion/creator of the Exam Crambook series. The other is for SMB network management, monitoring, and utility powerhouse company Spiceworks, and sponsored by the printer division at Dell.
Here are some details for both of these one-hour Webinars:
11:00 AM CDT Pearson IT Certification “Planning Your Next Certification Campaign”
What you’ll get from me here is a description of how to establish goals and evaluate certification progess. In particular, I’ll discuss how to conduct a self- or readiness-assessment for IT certification, developing a study plan, and establishing a personal support system. I’ll also explain how to implement such a study plan, and then provide pointers to resources to help you along this path. Should be fun! Here’s the registration page.
01:00 PM CDT Spiceworks “Best Ways to Reduce Printer Costs By Up to 40 Percent”
In this Webinar, I take a look at how organizations can reduce their printing costs substantially, and cover lots of nitty-gritty detail that explains exactly how this can happen. I’ll look at printer monitoring and management techniques, discuss smart ways to curb printing costs, explain how electronic routing and distribution can render some hardcopy output unnecessary, and even get into how using draft mode and so-called “eco-fonts” can cut down on toner or ink consumption. Same thing goes for default use of duplex mode, printing 2 or 4 slides per page in PowerPoint, and so forth and so on. Attendees should walk away with some good ideas on how to reduce printing costs, and with pointers to tools and information to help them turn such savings loose in their own organization. Not to stretch your credibility overmuch, but I’m gonna do my best to make this fun and fact-filled, too! Here’s the sign-up link.
I hope you’ll join me for one or both of these Webinars online. If you do, please also be sure to pepper the Q&A session with your questions, comments, and concerns. I like a lively online interchange. Thanks!
