Description

Welcome to the Paperless & Productive FREE Workshop

The goal of this workshop is to open your eyes to what is possible in going paperless, to have all your information at your fingertips 24/7 and be more productive any where and any time as a result. I will do this by demonstrating how I use a handful of online apps to diligently and often effortlessly manage and streamline my personal and professional life.

Auto-Complete for Everything
I will start with what is the equivalent of "Auto-Complete for Word" but is in actual fact "Auto-Complete for your WHOLE computer system and Smartphone" as it does a lot more than just expand short codes into text. This tool is my personal favourite and once you are habitually using it, you'll long for it when using someone else's computer!

Password Management Tools
I will demonstrate how you can manage all your passwords, PINs and private information all in one secure online vault that is accessible across a wide range of operating systems, Smartphones and internet browsers. This is a super handy tool and offers a great balance between security and convenience.

Cloud Storage
For those of you who would classify yourselves as "Un-Tech-Savvy" and are not familiar with why cloud storage tools such as Dropbox and Google Drive are a MUST for every computer these days, we'll cover that.

Electronic Signatures
Forget printing and signing documents, I'll give you a hack on how to create an electronic signature and use it to stamp your signature onto any PDF so you can quickly email that document out.

Digital Business Cards
Still rummaging through piles of business cards to share a contact? Perhaps it's time your business card collection went digital so you can eliminate the clutter. Digitising business cards also means that you can share them and your own at the drop of a hat via a host a delivery options (Email, SMS, FB Messenger, LinkedIn etc) and this is especially useful when someone asks for a business card but you don't have one on you at the time.

Digitise Tax-Deductible Expense Receipts
For most of my life tax time was the bane of my existence. Fortunately I discovered a free app to allow me to immediately upload tax-deductible receipts directly into an online spreadsheet that I export and send to my accountant. I have a simple checklist to calmly collate all the tax statements into Dropbox to also share with my accountant. Now I (almost) love tax time.

Photos
Time permitting, we will take a quick look at how to rid your life of the old box of printed photos collecting dust in the cupboard by having them digitised by a paid service and then effortlessly uploading them to Google Photos for free cloud storage for life. Then I will briefly demonstrate how to tag, catgorise, share and create a collage.

Automators
Also time-permitting, we will touch on the variety of online Automators out there and how you can use these platforms to create mini-workflows to automate repetitive, mundane tasks such as copying or moving information between many online web platforms (websites) such as social media or manipulate files stored in Dropbox or Google Drive.

The Bucket for Everything Else
Last but certainly not the least, this app takes care of the brunt of my digitising, storing and instant searching for what was once cluttering my home as Post-It Notes, printed snail mail notices and scraps of paper. It has unlimited uses and is the tool I spend more time in than any other.


What to bring?
Notepad and pen to take notes

Venue and Parking
Lonestar Tavern has ample parking available directly in front of the Sports Bar entrance, indicated by the red location marker below.



If you find yourself at Dan Murphys, you'll need to drive down the side of Dan Murphys to get to the Tavern side of the complex.

Enter the Sports Bar entrance which faces Markeri St.


How to find the Workshop location?
Once inside just head for the big projector screen up the back where the pool tables are. This part of the bar will be sectioned off for our workshop.




See you on Tuesday the 18th of July from 6:15pm for a 6:30pm start!
