The one-day course, being delivered by Gulf Savannah NRM, is aimed at helping community members master software such as Xero, Microsoft Excel and MYOB.

The next Digital Capacity Workshop focusses on Microsoft Word and will be held at the Jackaroo Motel 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,” she said.

“We held a Microsoft Excel session in Mareeba in February, and a Microsoft Word course in Georgetown last month and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.”

The upcoming workshop in Mareeba will cover Word essentials including creating flyers, brochures, newsletters and business letters. There will also be shortcuts, tips and tricks to learn about. 

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.
