I hope you were all able to grab a copy of the handout I produced. My case was certainly a lot lighter going back to the UK!
In case you didn't here is a link to a PDF version of the handout.
Don't forget about the slide challenge!
Take one slide from a presentation that you or a colleague has done and improve it. Remember to make it work for the audience, complement what the speaker is saying and get the important point across.
Send both the original and your improved version to me at firstname.lastname@example.org along with an explanation if you want.
If you want any help as you are doing it, ping me an email with any questions.
I'll give feedback on all slides submitted to me and don't forget, there will be a prize for the best one.
