Google’s powerful suite of free tools gives you the ability to run your business efficiently in the cloud. This “boot camp” will teach you the essentials of using G Suite. You’ll do some core work (Docs, Drive, and Sheets), strength training (Forms, My Business, Keep, and Tasks), sculpting (Slides and Sites), and learn some tips to get your Calendar and Gmail in peak working condition. Bring your laptop and a sweat towel. 

Session Objectives:
- Explain the advantages of using cloud-based tools.
- Create, share, and organize a Google Doc. 
- Create a Google Sheet and learn to use basic operations such as sorting, filtering, and pivot tables. 
- Use Google Forms to automate business processes. 
- Set up a Google My Business account for their business. 
- Use Google Drive for cloud file storage. 
- Create a website for your business with Google Sites. 
- Manage workflow with Google Calendar, Google Tasks, and Google Keep.

Engaging the Audience:
We will engage the audience by leading them through exercises to learn G Suite tools. We will also be using Poll Everywhere for audience interaction during the presentation. 

This information is relevant to the organizing profession because it will teach organizers how to use the many powerful and free Google tools to help run their organizing business.
