Digital Office Tools – What is that?

You visit my page and you think: “Digital Office Tools”, what is that for a weird animal? You are not the only one! I didn’t know of its existence last year either.

What is it?

It is a micro degree of office management that learns you how to work with all of the Office (365) tools you could possibly encouter when you are doing a job at an office!

What tools does the study include?

* Outlook
* Word
* Excel
* Access
* PowerPoint
* Alternative presentation tools
* Publisher
* Visio
* Cloudtools: Office 365, Teams, WordPress, SharePoint
* Social media for professionals 
* Slideshare

What made you decide to choose this micro degree?

When I was applying for an office jobs, almost all of the competence profiles required “a good knowledge of the Office package”. 
I made an appointment with the coordinator of the field of study “office management” because you learn about the Office package in that study. 
But to be honest, after already five years of studying, I did not feel like starting a whole new study that would be at least three years of extra studying. 
Then they told me about the option to follow the micro degree ‘Digital Office Tools’ (DOT) that would make you an Office Tool Expert in only one year! 
No need to say more: I signed up for it and it enhanced my chances on the labor marked immediately! I do not regret this choice, it has been one of the best decisions in my life!

This looks like Chinese to you? 
Well, before this year, it would freak me out too.
Now I learnt how to work with all of these useful tools!

Don’t hesitate: contact me for more information or immediately sign up for the micro degree ‘Digital Office Tools’ (DOT) and enhance your chances on the labor market! 🙂 

Go vegetarian!

At the beginning of December last year, I decided to go vegetarian.
A lot of people ask me why I made that decision.
Well, let us first take a look at the following video about the consequences if the world would go vegetarian:

You watched the video and you are still wondering why I decided to go vegetarian?
Well, it is simple:
1. First of all, I do it for the animals. After all the recent scandals in the meat industry,  no one can be sure of how the animals they eat are treated. And after all, my opinion is that there is no acceptable way of treating animals to death just for our own consumption. Ask yourself the following question: “What if you were an animal, would you like to be bred, feeded and treated just to be slaughtered when you reach the ideal age and weight just to have the best taste?”. Well, I don’t know about you, but I would not like that and to quote our dear friend Jezus: “Don’t treat anyone or anything else the way you would not like to be treated”
2. Secondly, I did it for the environment. If we keep destroying our planet the way we are doing it right now, will there even be a planet left for our grandchildren? Think about the future! They are the future, but we have to create a future for them …

Still not convinced to go 100% vegetarian?
I can get that! But at least try not to eat meat twice a week, raise it to three times a week when you feel ready to go for it.

Do you need advice or recipes?
