Dear Reader:

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of our readers impacted by #HurricaneHarvey and #HurricaneIrma. If you can, please donate to the American Red Cross who has been overwhelmed by two major hurricanes in such a short period of time.

Do you have any burning questions about PowerPoint that have challenged you? Our Presentation Guild experts - aka our super heroes - will come to your rescue. Join us on Tuesday, September 19th at 11 am PDT/ 2 pm EDT for a fun, interactive "Ask the Experts" panel with Microsoft PowerPoint MVPs and Presentationists, including Ric Bretschneider, Stephy Lewis, Sandra Johnson, and Steve Rindsberg. And you can send me your questions in advance, if you want to get ahead of the game.

Happy First Anniversary, Presentation Guild! It has been a year since the Presentation Guild was launched at the Presentation Summit. And what a year it has been. Watch my "Dishing on Presentations" conversation with Microsoft PowerPoint MVPs, Echo Swinford and Sandra Johnson. Listen to how it started, what they have accomplished and what the future plans are.

It's #ThrowbackThursday. With this year's Presentation Summit coming up shortly, let's take a look back at the "Dishing on Presentations" conversations we have with the presenters and attendees at the New Orleans Summit.

Microsoft PowerPoint MVP, Heather Ackmann shares the journey she took with Lynda/ LinkedIn to create her new course, PowerPoint: Designing Better Slides. She gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the process and what it takes to deliver a well-designed course in today's world.

If you are going to the Presentation Summit, please stop by our table during the Exhibit Hall and introduce yourself. I hope to see you all in Florida.

Till next month,

Sharyn Fitzpatrick
