Lync Courses | Green Shoots Learning | workshops

Lync is a relatively new software product from Microsoft.  It is a fantastic communication tool which allows you to instant message, chat, share software, share screens and run presentations all from your desktop.  You can compare it to Skype or Google Hang-outs and if you already have Office 365 you may already have access to Lync.


Lync also comes with a mobile communications offering, a web app for non-desktop users and it works with Skype accounts, as Microsoft own Skype.  For those using on premise solutions you can use Lync Server 2013 rather than a business solution of Office 365.


For more information on setting up and working with Lync please contact our partner 3IT Ltd for impartial advice.

Creating flexiblity through customisation

We won’t categorise your employees into beginner, intermediate and advanced as we find this restricting. However we will design workshops around the skill sets your employees need to succeed in their current and future roles.


An IT Workshop costs from £295 + VAT based on a maximum group size of 8 delegates. Equipment can be provided if required, for an additional charge.


We probably can’t provide all of the answers to all of your questions online so please call us on 0333 344 4031  to discuss your requirements.
