Great info!! Thank you, super!!
Lots of good information. I am just starting, so I wish you'd helped me "create" a new slide . . . from the very beginning. Also, please slow down when you move your cursor around . . .it's not easy to see where your cursor is and then . . .bingo . . .a new image or drop down appears, and I don't know how you got there! Otherwise, you are a good presenter. I have learned so much from several of your other presentations. Thank you.

The presentation was helpful and I learned some neat new tricks with the paintbrush and cropping pictures into a shape. I will definitely up my game on my presentations. Thank you!

I liked that Deb walked us through all the neat functions that can be used in a power point presentation. I just need to practice using the functions and creating practice slide presentations. Thanks. How can I access my completion certificate?
I think it was simply awesome! I definetely prefer the ability to pause the presentation, and then try the topics and tricks on my own presentation. This takes time, but it is so worthwhile. Just like our kids who play video games, practice make perfection. On this particular lesson, I spent 90 minutes, M.S. TEXAS
It was excellent - I have never taken 5 pages of notes in a 30 minute webinar - I couldn't write fast enough!
