I tend to use SlideShare for uploading presentations and sharing them with delegates who attended one of my events. However, my aim is to look further into various programmes to find out what else they can do – like most people I only access a small percentage of available capability on most things due to time and lack of in-depth knowledge. I will share these with you as I go along.
Back to SlideShare!
