The 3.5-hour technology segment of the class is taught by Vickie Sokol Evans who is the trainer to Bill Gates' team. She is now one of the most sought after technology and productivity trainers in the world. As the Founder of RedCape Academy, Vickie is an expert in PC, Mac and Google. And best of all, as a former assistant herself, she totally "gets" what assistants do and the very best ways to get it done. At BTUA, she teaches MS Office - Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. Vickie leaves BTUA students inspired and motivated to teach others what they learned and often to seek certification themselves.

What makes BTUA different and special from other training?
This is a question we get asked a lot. 

  • 2020 marks BTUA’s 9th year serving the global workplace. Vickie and I have a collective 50+ years of experience and have trained students from 40 countries in prestigious companies & at Parliament.
  • BTUA classes are small – 30 people max. Our students love our intimate, highly interactive and personalized approach. The small size allows us to dive deeply into the trickiest and toughest subjects.
  • I have a 1:1 conversation with every student weeks before BTUA in order to customize the class to the specific needs of students and executives alike.
  • Our students travel from all over the world to BTUA and that diversity adds to the richness of the experience. The workshop is entirely in English.
