In this workshop, we will explore the software tools you need as a small business or consultant, Google’s cloud IT suite of tools (G Suite) and what it covers. You will get a live demo, as well as best practices for G Suite’s use from someone who worked at Google for over 10 years and is a a G Suite Certified System Administrator.
