Last week I gave a webinar about how non-profits can make charitable giving easier for members (when not blogging about living frugally or parenting, I am an estate planning and probate attorney). The hosting organization asked me to provide a "power point". Hmmmm, I do lots of seminars, but never use Power Point or any slides (called foils these days). Instead I have hand out and simply talk with the audience. But, this was via the web with people from all of the country. A presentation format was needed.
My husband, a tech aficionado, recommended I look into Google Docs. I did and I was amazed. The software was free, easy to use, and contained a pool from which to select images. It came together amazingly fast. I will certainly use it again.
One downside was that it was on the cloud, and when my internet connection suffered a meltdown at the beginning of my presentation, my slides went with it. Thankfully I had saved them as a PDF and sent the to the coordinator. All in all I was happy with the program, and delighted I didn't have to buy Power Point. If you give presentations, Google Docs is worth a closer look.
