Advanced Microsoft Word Webcast Package

Featuring renowned technology problem solver Barron K. Henley


Barron Will Teach You How to Control Word, Instead of Word Controlling You!
The seminars in this webcast package are designed for any lawyer, paralegal, or support staff who want to master Word and create complex legal documents with ease, speed, and accuracy. When legal instruments require complex formatting, most Word users struggle to get the document to look the way they want. Users often describe it as a “wrestling match” or having to “outsmart the program.” Some advanced features like automatic paragraph numbering, table of contents, and tables of authority seem inaccessible or broken. The good news is that once you understand how Word works, it is completely controllable. Barron can get you to that place. He'll teach you the techniques you need to help you quickly create content and avoid costly time spent beating text into submission. If you can think of something you wish Word could do when it comes to generating complicated or lengthy documents, it can be done. Learn to avoid the “how do I fix this mess?” issues before they occur.

  • Have a problem document? Registered attendees can email it in advance (bhenley@affinitycounsulting.com) and he may use it during the class. If not, he’ll email you a solution.
  • Have a question after the course is over? Barron will offer all attendees Microsoft Word tech support (by email) for 2 days following the training (Wednesday, October 14 and Thursday, October 15) to make sure your frustrating issues are solved.

What Previous Minnesota CLE Attendees Say About Barron Henley:

  • Mr. Henley gave the best explanation of Microsoft Word I have ever heard.
  • Outstanding! He answered questions I’ve been too embarrassed to ask.
  • I loved that he was not selling the latest greatest whatever – just high quality information for the programs I already have!
  • Engaging, funny, and incredibly helpful!
  • Barron guarantees he can solve your Microsoft Word frustrations!


What Version of Word Will Be Taught?
Barron will teach from Word for Windows (Office 365 version).  However, we have a Word for Windows manual that covers Word for Windows 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019 and O365. We ALSO have a Word for Mac manual that covers Word for Mac 2016, 2019 and O365. There should be something for everybody.

Please note that attendees need the DESKTOP version of Word for Windows or Word for Mac on their laptop or desktop to benefit from this program.
