“I am happy to report that I did a very small PowerPoint project this morning. In the past it has taken me a VERY long time to stumble my way through everything. It was a BREEZE today, Vickie! I was so shocked at how much I retained from having attended your online course over two months ago. I created a beautiful 22 slide presentation from scratch in under 45 minutes. That included interruptions. So fast and SO flippin' easy! Thank you, thank you!”Linda Montgomery
“All I kept thinking is that I will never have to spend late hours in the office the night before a meeting formatting others' PowerPoint slides, that came to me [at the last minute] now that I have been introduced to the Reset button (tip # 75) in PowerPoint! The time flew by and I was energized by the information that was taught. My time was well spent at this training, and I laughed a lot too; Vickie is a hoot!”Susie Chaney, Procter & Gamble
“I have no previous training in PowerPoint before this session. Now I am confident I can prepare an amazing presentation in no time.”Attendee from Dallas County Community College
