Paid Webinar Archives Come Through at a Perfect Time for Job in Australia

"Just thought I would send through some feedback on the PowerPoint 2010 Webinar archive I purchased last week. Absolutely brilliant. You guys really have got your stuff together when it comes to that training. It has all come in handy already ... I received my first training packages for the new job today (I start on Monday) and what do you know, one of the packages was PowerPoint. Previously I had no idea how to access the speaker notes, but this time I got them all, so thanks to you in the Training department for the fantastic packages. Also I will now be able to educate the developers of our packages how to label the graphics and buttons etc. with alt text so I know what is on all the slides."
