Practicing what I Preach

In my technology training workshop Sunday one of my points was that if you are doing a presentation you have to be ready to roll with any glitches that pop up.

Monday I got to practice what I preach. My CyberClinic was about new technologies in libraries and I created a small PPT to use. I copied it from my Mac to my JumpDrive and was good to go -- or so I thought....

In the room...with minutes before the start -- an maybe 40 folks waiting -- the PPT would not open! It would not open on another laptop as well! My Mac was in my hotel room so I had to go ahead and do it from my own storage drive -- my brain!

I had no notes because the PPT was my outline as well...so I did it. I spoke from my head! It went ok!!

Moral: always test your copied presentations when moving them with portable storage drives!!! Test them on the drives!!!
