Go from panicked problem solver to calm angel on your executive’s shoulder
with Essential Office for The Savvy Assistant you can focus on what really matters.
Discover how you can master Microsoft Excel even if Microsoft Excel Scares You
It’s hard to keep up with all the changes Microsoft introduces
Isn’t it always the way? You’ve just worked out how to do something like change a formula in Excel, and then they’ve changed it again.
Result: you spend ages googling and hoping you’re doing it right, while all the time your executive is waiting for the result, so they can go into their meeting well-prepared.
It’s nerve wracking to experience this, and even worse if this is happening several times a week.
That hour you’d reserved for another task goes up in smoke (again!) and you’re left feeling like you have no control over your time.
The thing is, Microsoft isn’t about to slow down, and neither is your executive. Sometimes it feels like your only choice is to constantly spend hours searching for solutions or look for another job entirely.

About Shelley Fishel
Shelley has always had a head for organising. Give her a list and she’s happy. Done✅ Next!
When her kids grew, and she moved back into the workforce 25 years ago she started her own training company and discovered she loved working with PAs and EAs.
She gets how they think and what they do. They have so many different responsibilities and contacts; the lynchpin, sorting everything and everybody out.
And above all, their goal is to help their executive perform at their best. Shelley can relate to that, because she wants nothing more than to help YOU perform at your best.
She loves to break down complex activities into simple steps that she can explain in a step-by-step practical way. #loveroflists Even though she is a Microsoft Office expert, she prefers to say she helps you get things done quicker, easier, and more elegantly (and without drowning in Google first).
As one of her long-term clients said about her recently: “Shelley’s like the angel on my shoulder”.
I feel so much more confident on Excel after completing the course. Everything is explained very clearly, each module is just long enough, everything is covered. It's easy to pause to practice on your own spreadsheet. I highly recommend this course.

Introducing Shelley Fishel - The MS Office Maestro
I was so excited when the 3 computers arrived. I was finally going to be able to get rid of all the bits of paper, linking one piece of information to another. Now I could build a database.
The only problem was, I had no idea how. So, I bought a book about Access and taught myself.
And that’s what I’ve been doing ever since.
I didn’t get the education I wanted when I was younger. By the time I was 17, I had to leave school to take over running my father’s business. I’ve always had a head for organizing. Give me a list and I’m happy. Done √ Next!
Because I didn’t finish my education, it was logical that I would stay at home when I got married and had children. And I loved so much of it. My family is at the heart of my life, and I love it when people feel comfortable and cared for. I’ve even become a bit famous for my Friday Shabbat baking photos (join me on Instagram for those).
But even back then I knew I could do much more (I’d already run one company and done admin for another) and I wanted to earn my own money too.
The kids grew and I moved back into the workforce over 20 years ago, eventually finding a wonderful training company where I learned my trade.
Being fiercely independent, my next step was starting my own company. I discovered I loved working with PAs and EAs. I get how they think and what they do. They have lots of different responsibilities and contacts; they’re the lynchpin, sorting everything and everybody out. And above all, their goal is helping their manager perform at their best.
I can relate to that, because I want nothing more than to help YOU perform at your best.
Over the years I’ve realized that I love to break down complex activities into simple steps that I can explain in a step-by-step practical way. #loveroflists
I never call myself a Microsoft expert. I just help you get things done quicker, easier, and more elegantly (and without drowning in Google first).
I can’t put it better than what a long-term client said about me recently: “Shelley’s like the angel on my shoulder”. I love that!
