ONLINE WEBINAR: How to protect your brand with Word – An introduction to building Word templates

June 14, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In this 45 minute session we’ll delve into the world of Word templates, and how they can help businesses look after the brands you’ve created for them, all in the context of a high-speed letterhead template demonstration build.


Who is the workshop for?

This is for anyone who wants to demystify the world of Word templates. It will be of particular interest to designers who want to know how to build a simple template and for those who are already building templates. It will also be relevant to designers and account managers who want to understand the limitations of working with Word and how Microsoft can be used to help protect brands. The workshop will be conducted using Word on a PC.
