Ira is one of the real MSP top guns. I especially enjoy handy tools that have been designed for the power user on the desktop. For years, it seems that only Project Server problems linked to big data, were addressed in Webinars.

  1. Great presentation, very useful

  2. Great presentation. Ira is one of my favorite presenters. I have struggled to figure away to adjust the font size when in a planning session. It is the little things that make the job easier. Thank you for sharing.
