Instructor Biography

Brian Culp, Author. Microsoft Certified Instructor.

You want to learn quickly. I can help.

Over the course of 10 years, I've authored over 30 technical titles for publishers like O’Reilly, McGraw-Hill and Addison-Wesley. I’ve spent countless hours teaching technical subjects to individuals and Fortune 500 companies - clients like Microsoft, Sprint, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Budweiser.

I’ve taught students ranging from beginners with Outlook, to veteran admins seeking MCSE Certification. Through it all, I've learned a lot, including this: learning doesn’t have to be painful or boring.

In all of my Like a Boss courses - Visio, Project, OneNote and others - you'll quickly learn the skills you need. I place special emphasis on the real-world and the best-practice.

Additionally, I'll help you overcome any hurdles specific to your needs. Answering your community discussions questions and helping you accomplish your goals are my top priorities.

So do what you’ve promised yourself you would. Either learn a new app, or learn how to unlock the potential of an app you already use.

And there's no risk - all of my courses come with a money back guarantee. If you don’t learn the skills you want, you get your money back. No questions asked.

So why wait? Sign up today and discover how quickly you can master that new application when you're learning... Like a Boss.
