Microsoft Office Training Event

Microsoft Office Training Kelowna

Two of the most respected and qualified computer software experts in BC come together to bring their insightful, effective and passionate training sessions to the Okanagan this summer.

“Barrie is able to make training fun with humour and stories. He has the ability to speak to all skill levels, and focus on just a few key tips that could impact people’s efficiency in their jobs right away. You could see the delight on people’s faces when they found out there was an easier way – after all, who wants to spend hours fighting with a spreadsheet? I would highly recommend Barrie and Dragon Corporate Training to any organization that senses too much time is being spent on what should be simple software tasks.”

Patty Driscoll, Manager, Development Services, Canadian Cancer Society, BC and Yukon Division

“Reen delivered training that exceeded expectations. She has the perfect combination of technical expertise, humor, patience and experience. She easily adapted to the various learning styles of the group, and provided a collaborative, inclusive training session. Reen took the time to make sure every participant had an understanding of the subject matter before moving on. Thank you Reen for offering well organized classes, it was a pleasure working with you!”

Christy Malden, Deputy Corporate Officer, Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen

Training yourself and your staff to maximize the capabilities of the computer software they use every day is one of the most effective and immediate ways to improve efficiency, accuracy, productivity and job satisfaction.

Qualified, Experienced & Passionate

Reen and Barrie bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the business classroom. Their training style is like nothing you’ve experienced before. They provide courses that are relevant, informative and enjoyable.



“Reen makes an instant and long lasting connection with her students. She is one of those trainers that doesn’t come along very often and I am certain that any company will find immense value from the investment made in training their staff. As an instructor, there are few more talented than Reen – she is focused, fun and very effective.”

“Lorna Jones, Director of HR/Communications – City of Pitt Meadows



“We were always troubled by the effectiveness of the Microsoft training we had previously organized. Staff learned the features of the software but it was difficult to see any tangible improvements in their day to day jobs. I met with Barrie and could immediately see that his targeted, business focused approach was a great fit for us.

Barrie’s knowledge and smooth delivery make training with him a great experience.”

Ken Ogden, Manager of Information Services, City of Langley

Focusing on Business

Reen Rose and Barrie Morse will be delivering these courses in a way that focuses on getting the most out of the software from a business perspective. They will reveal parts of the software that a vast majority of business users are unaware of which means they aren’t using it to its full capacity. Even long-term users will discover power features and hidden elements that will greatly improve their use and understanding of these benchmark products.

“Our staff got meaningful results from their training and they were able to incorporate what they learned immediately.  Barrie is the one person we would consider working with when we need to provide training.  I would highly recommend Barrie and Dragon Corporate Training to anyone looking for computer skills training that is relevant to their job!”

Heather Gherman, Human Resources, District of Mission

“Thank you Reen, we found the onsite Microsoft Training to be excellent. The course content was structured well for all levels of computer literacy. Your teaching style and sense of humor was well received by all. If we started to veer off topic you were able to bring us back to focus easily and kept the participants at an appropriate pace. Many people in our department have gone on to instruct others in the office on the use of Microsoft 2010. I think your course made us immediately more efficient and knowledgeable so we could perform the daily tasks without a disruption to our company workflow. Being able to contact you for additional questions beyond the training days was an invaluable resource for me. I appreciated you taking the time to give me the resources to find the answer to my questions on my own as well.”
