Jennifer Munn

I learned so much from this course. Having been a PPT user for many years, I was hoping to see what was new in the latest versions. However, I am happy to say that I've come away with tips to do things that I've been doing for years in a new and more efficient manner. The instructor was great, the course informative and I came out of the class excited for my next project!
