Training Schedule
by Kristie Sapp

I am spending most of October getting ready for Annual Conference. Joe Lear and I will be pairing up to present "Adding Impact to Your PowerPoint Presentation" on Monday, October 25, 1999, from 3:15 p.m to 5:00 p.m. We will demonstrate how to design and develop a PowerPoint presentation using pictures, tables, charts, graphics, video and hyperlinks. We will start with a set of bad PowerPoint slides and build them into a better overall presentation that will impact your viewing audience.

We will also team up to present again on Tuesday, October 26, 1999, from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. This session is entitled, "The Transition to Word and Publisher". We will demonstrate how to do all the things you did in WordPerfect with Word and Publisher software including merges, brochures, posters of all sizes, booklet printing and much more. Hope you can join us at one of these sessions!

As an added bonus, we will be providing e-mail access plus demonstrating CBT Training Courses in the Expo Center. Bring any questions you might have to our booth and we will see what we can do!
