Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

This session is designed to be educational but also supply a bit of an entertaining brain break. There are so many things happening at Google in the form of great stories, under the radar products and handy resources. This session will explore all of it and should be entertaining yet educational.


I guarantee each attendee will at least learn ONE new thing Google related. If not, come up to me after class and I will apologize and give you a hug. - Fun mostly unknown yet entertaining facts about Google - Some of the more obscure but handy / beneficial Google Apps - Some great Google websites and resources that do not get the recognition they deserve.
