Work with Me

Having helped clients with their Word documents and templates for over 2 decades, I know the problems that you're faced with.

If you've browsed through this site, looked at some of the videos I've done, and read some of my posts, you'll know that I not only know what I'm doing with Word, but that I also tell you what you need to do.

To work effectively with Word you need to nail one key component:

Styles

(I know, I'm like a broken record.)

But seriously, they're that important.

Everything in Word depends on styles. 

It's also why I created my Word templates pack. To help circumvent that learning element: to get you to a certain point, with styles setup correctly.

With those templates, all you need to do is add your own branding, type and click. It's all in the video training that accompanies the templates. 

However, if you need my specific help, then feel free to get in touch.

Custom Packages

I create custom-designed packages for businesses. This can involve database integrations, mail-merge, custom VBA work, etc., whatever you need, basically.

As I like to tell people, "If Word's capable of doing it, then so can I."

Testimonials

  • Even us power users curse Word sometimes, especially when for some unknown reason, one of our styles displays a black box instead of the number that it should show, corrupting the Table of Contents in the process. Or we fix a paragraph multiple times and it keeps insisting on changing back. Or we inherit a one-hundred page document that needs totally reformatting, one paragraph at a time. Enter Mr. Crowley’s course, Microsoft Word 2016 for Beginners*. 

    The one thing I liked best about the course was Mr. Crowley’s teaching style, clear, concise and reasonably paced. The material is thoughtfully laid out, one lesson flowing smoothly into the next.  Don’t let the course name fool you. After covering the basics, this course shows you how to do virtually anything that you might need. Document gotten so big that it could use a Table of Contents? Module 10. Need an index? Module 16. Want a numbered list and it needs sorted? Module 13. 

    These are just a few of the items taught in this course. You’ll definitely be scratching your head, thinking, “wow, I didn’t know Word could do that.

    Mr. Crowley could be called a “style and section evangelist”. He never misses an opportunity to emphasize that any misbehaving document probably has its roots in poorly-applied or unused styles and sections. I suspect this may be the root cause of my black squares for numbers identified earlier. After completing the course, the main benefit I have a better appreciation of Word’s bells and whistles, along with a resource for how to do things. I would recommend this course to users of all skill levels.
