What others say about Agnes

Per Birk, Special consultant, TechLead @National Danish Police

“Top dollar value. A one-day search workshop is not enough. The method Agnes Molnar use to give the participants deep search knowledge is brilliant.
After the workshop, you even get more and you can follow up on your own using the Search Academy and the articles on Search Explained.”

Katleen Van Trier, Productivity Consultant (Office 365 – SharePoint) | Project Manager @Ordina

“All our users want a Google like search experience in SharePoint or Office 365. Agnes gave us some insights about what is under the hood of a solid search setup, and how all pieces fit together. Agnes also provided templates to gather functional search requirements, so it is much more than a technical course, you learn how to create a search solution. And as a bonus you can ask any question to an expert, even weeks after the course. :)”

Grant R. Cocco, CISSP, Senior Systems Administrator @Woodard & Curran

“Agnes, Thank you for developing this course. Understanding Search is key to the success of any project based on Office 365 / SharePoint technologies. Anyone who faces the challenge of making content easily discoverable by colleagues, co-workers and constituents will find your work helpful.”

FAQ
How long is the class?
Class #1 and #2 are both 3 day classes, 4 hours each day.
How does the tuition look like exactly?
Agnes first explaines the basic ideas and background information then we start building. Everybody follows the workbook to execute the tasks but you can ask your questions in the meantime. She explains each part not to just follow the steps but to understand what’s behind it. The goal is to have a cool, working Search Configuration at the end.
I am a knowledge manager / information architect. Are these classes for me?
Yes, they are. You will learn best practices of how to organize your content for better findability, the configuration options of improving search, as well as how create search-driven applications (for example dashboards or knowledge portals).
What do I have to bring to the classes?
A computer that you will be working on and prepare with another monitor or a projector to be able to follow the workbook. You can print it out in advance too.
I am an IT Pro / SharePoint administrator. Are these classes for me?
Yes, absolutely. You will learn the configuration steps and best practices. Moreover, you also get new ideas of how everything can be used in your organization, which you can present to your managers – and become the Search Ninja who makes it possible! How does this sound?
I am a developer. Are these classes for me?

Sorry, but this course doesn’t have any dev content.

However, if you want to understand what you do when you develop something for your organization’s Search portal, these classes will help you.

If you have any question that I didn't answer yet just send me an e-mail!
