Boost Your Digital Skills

Gulf Savannah NRM is delivering a series of free digital skills workshops for residents, businesses and community organisations.

The one-day courses will help community members master software such as Xero, Microsoft Excel and MYOB.

The next Digital Capacity Workshop focusses on Microsoft Word — and is at the Jackaroo Motel in Mareeba from 9am to 5pm on Wednesday 8 May. Registration is required and refreshments are provided.

Community Resilience Project Officer Deb Schedue said previous workshops had received great feedback from attendees.

‘These hands-on workshops aim to improve confidence so participants can be better prepared to combat stresses caused by drought and other disasters. We held a Microsoft Excel session in Mareeba in February, and a Microsoft Word course in Georgetown last month — the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive!

‘The upcoming workshop in Mareeba will focus on Word essentials including creating flyers, brochures, newsletters and business letters. There will also be heaps of shortcuts, tips and tricks to learn about,’ she said.

To register for the workshop on Wednesday 8 May visit Further sessions will be announced in the coming months on Gulf Savannah NRM’s website.

This project is supported by the Foundation for Rural Regional Renewal, through funding from the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund.
