  • Give An Original Holiday Gift to Friends and Family or Create Business Presentations! There are many uses for creating slide shows (with or without narration, music, or other sound effects) which can be converted to videos.

    Power Point presentations can be used for personal or business purposes, to depict volunteer activities, and to educate people. They tell your story visually for an audience that needs to see, not just hear, the content of your speech or presentation. This example uses theatrical masks to get attention for a very dramatic subject. The invitation is composed of a handful of slides, which I converted to video format. The slides also can be saved individually.

    This class is part of the "All You Need To Know About..." Business and Skills Series. In this class, I shall teach you how to create a presentation technically. A separate class is available if you need to learn all the aspects of creating a speech or training presentation, in terms of content. To benefit from this class, you need to have the Microsoft Suite, which includes Power Point on the device you bring to the class.

    There still are many people who have been too afraid of computers to try using them, and these are the folks whom I would love to teach in a safe, unpressured environment. I am "beta testing" (trying out) these classes first at Blossomforth to make sure I allow the correct amount of time for "Nubies" to learn and that I have covered what they want to know. This means that the cheapest price for learning from me is in these Meetups, although the classes will be offered again at normal prices (which still are less than you would pay at community colleges). I hope you will join us or will tell people who can benefit.

    I am open to people of all ages at all times, but I am especially interested in reaching people who were born before the computer revolution or who are learning English. ESL students need a fair level or proficiency, so they can understand my normal speech, even if they don't know "computer-speak."

    If people don't even know how to turn on a computer, I shall teach them and won't think they're "dumb."  Students must bring their own laptops or equivalent devices. (I think it might be difficult to do this first class on a phone.)

    PAYMENT: there will be a manual with extensive pictures of the steps. That manual can be downloaded. Printed copies may be purchased for $20, payable at the beginning of class by cash or check (payable to My Persuasive Presentations). You may pay at the door by cash or check (payable to My Persuasive Presentations) for the class, itself, when we meet, but we must have your RSVP in advance, because seating is limited, and the extensive and expensive manuals have to be printed.

    I look forward to helping folks "get up to speed" and make connections through Facebook. Hope to see you there. Please contact me, if you want to be on a Wait List, if the class is full.

    We'll be meeting at Blossomforth, which has its own wonderful Spiritual Path offerings that you may wish to explore with Rev. Marti Giese, who is our hostess. For address and directions, contact Marti at[masked] or email her at [masked]. PLEASE PARK IN HER DRIVEWAY, if there is room for your vehicle. Otherwise, you may park on the street.

    I'll be glad to answer any questions you have as we get started, so email me, if you would like more information about a topic or if you would like to host one of my sessions in a different location. [masked] or leave a message at[masked]-4311.

    I'm looking forward to meeting you and to sharing LIFE with you!
