:: Presentation Primer
Many individuals are called upon to
give presentations, but many have no formal
instruction on how to deliver the most effective

If your presentation involves using any equipment,
such as a microphone, computer, screen projector,
laser pointer, etc, be sure to test any and

of a Good Podcast
There are many, many things that separate
a good podcast from all the rest. Here
are a few to consider...
The quality of the recording is probably the
most critical component of a podcast. A good
podcast is easy to understand, and should be
recorded at a volume level that makes it easy
for listeners to hear all that is said.
