“What I liked, and learned most, from Tech-Talk this month was the importance and proper use of graphics. Nowadays a lot of students use graphics knowingly and unknowingly! A fun fact I learned was the correct pronunciation of the word ‘GIF’! I was saying it wrong the whole time. I think a lot of students share my lack of knowledge and will be excited to learn about graphics.”
~ Randi, a Warner University Student

“My favorite Tech-Talk so far is “Make Your Key Message POP”. I like to play around with text and photos in PowerPoint a lot and I felt I’ve gotten everything I could from it, but I didn’t know I could do things like that! It’s a fun way to keep my presentation clean and still catch an eye.”

We co-brand each product: 1) Publication, 2) Database, and 3) Mobile App using the organization’s name and logo so that users are continually reminded of who has provided this professional development resource to them.
You Get Rave Reviews
Yes, there will be times when people will come up to you or send a note telling you how much they liked the information you’ve given them. They’ll tell you stories of what they’ve learned and how it has helped.
“In the communications tip on ‘How Can I Make You Smile’, the emphasis was on positive communications and the effect that it could have. This is very relevant, especially in the college environment where you are running into people every day.”
~ A University Student Review

In this initial phase of roll-out for the Database Package, we work with you individually to find a price that slips easily into your budget so that hardly even notice it.
The Tech-Talk Mobile App will be available for all three types of devices: Apple iPhones, Android Smartphones and Tablets.
Every week a new and current article is written (in-house) on a unique topic. There are no duplicates. Occasionally there will be an article that adds more detail to a previous one or shows another slant for using a particular feature. When that occurs we refer the reader to the companion article as well.
Yes, these workplace skills (technology and communications) are available to your organization’s students, alumni and patrons for as long as the Tech-Talk license is active. People can log into the Database from any online location or look it up on their Mobile App.
We work closely with each institution to ensure authentication meets your requirements. We also provide you with an auto-login link that you use throughout your website so that users click just once to discover this gift you’ve offered. We also make it easy for students, alumni and patrons to login from wherever they are online.
In our 57 years combined of technology training experience, we’ve dedicated ourselves to creating relevant and useful content to help aspiring adults and youth succeed in the workplace. We really want to bring tools and techniques to libraries and other educational organizations, so that your students, patrons and members can develop confidence, self-reliance and pride as they become smart, tech-savvy non-techies.
