  • My dedication to you before I begin. By the end of this you will have gained 3 things. It might be new knowledge, it might be a new method but you MUST gain 3 things by the end. If you don’t my first challenge to you is to stalk me, hunt me down and make sure you get 3 things from me. Because I owe you 3 things! This is meant to help you. 
  • You take the estimated value and divide that by the estimated level of difficulty then times (*) it by 100 to get the percentage of ROI.
  • Ask every question three times in three different ways - Might get it wrong, might be mis-estimating their technical vocabulary/ability Use Pictures - Pictures and moreeee pictures.
  • Dependancy also works.
  • A lot of this can seem daunting and I know one of the hardest things is figuring out how to do some of the things I have shown today. If you are interested in further training or assistance please let me know. Based on the number of people who are interested and the areas of interest we can schedule further training sessions to help everyone better use the SharePoint portal. It's our commitment to you that we will continue to hear your feedback and identify the issues. I encourage you to give us feedback during the coming months, and we will continue to deliver more and more functionality, more and more guidance to help you be successful with your application of SharePoint. Thank You for Reading/Listening
