Technology Tips and Tricks Speed Meet

Does it feel like technology is constantly changing and there is always something new to learn? That's because it is! Finding the time to learn new tools—or learn old tools that we never got around to learning—can be a challenge. That's where our Technology Tips and Tricks Speed Meet can help! Every 15 minutes, we'll introduce/review a different technology that can help you save time, communicate better, collaborate easier, and improve efficiency.
