Saturday, May 9
Creating Presentations Using PowerPoint
9:00 am to 9:30 am
The Chamber, Ben Franklin Place 101 Centrepointe Drive, Ottawa, Ontario
Would you like to create a presentation for family, friends or BIFHSGO but don’t know where to start? Barbara Tose and Duncan Monkhouse will demonstrate the creation of a presentation using PowerPoint, discussing along the way how to focus your storyline, create slides that support your story and how to get and keep people’s attention.
About the speakers:
Barbara Tose learned performance skills as a singer in a folk trio throughout the 1990s. She has applied the skills she learned on stage, as well as her photographer’s eye, to the presentations she has given for BIFHSGO and other groups around the province. She is currently the editor of BIFHSGO’s quarterly journal, Anglo-Celtic Roots and the society’s back up photographer.
Duncan Monkhouse learned the skills required to get and keep people’s attention while training law enforcement officers from around the world and computer security professionals across Canada. His work as an electronic evidence officer and as part of the RCMP’s Security Evaluation and Inspection Team gave him ample opportunities to hone his presentation skills. He has used his technical knowledge and artistic eye to create several presentations for BIFHSGO. His is currently the society’s president.
Open to the public.
