Microsoft 365 Online Business Manager

Hi there, I'm Marianne!

I'm a Microsoft 365 Online Business Manager (or OBM).

What that actually means is that I specialise in helping you work smarter using Microsoft 365 across your business. There are so many ways that you can streamline your business with Outlook, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Sharepoint, Planner, Forms and Teams...and I bet you weren't even aware that you have access to them all with your Microsoft 365 account already!

With over 20 years' experience as a corporate administrator across a range of industries, I've worked with all of the core platforms in Microsoft 365, and know how to get the most out of them for you!

Here at Thrive, I'm all about:

  • helping you to find ways to work that fit your style and business 'voice';
  • working smarter, not harder (because who doesn't love a shortcut or automation, right?!); and
  • maximising the use of the tools you already have (like Microsoft 365), so you don't spend a cent more than you need to!

If you want to know more about how Thrive can ease your workload, book a chat with me today!
