Joe Suttle Presentations With Impact Learn the secrets to creating presentations that grab your audiences attention. This is not a “How to be a Speaker” session, but a demonstration of how to use slides and graphics in Impress or Powerpoint that help get your points across and what you say remembered. Drawing on accepted practices and actual experiences, you will leave better prepared to face your next audience. You’ll find ways to clear the cobwebs from data presentations, offer memorable content and discover ways to reinforce what you say.

If time allows, some command line usage will also be covered. Demonstration of moving files between mapped NetDrive volumes located on a NAS device or another workstation and the local filesystem will be included, as well as discussion of EA support and alternative authentication (Kerberos) for Samba 4.

There will be a discussion of the differences between NetDrive license tiers, what requires purchase of a license and what does not, as well as available plugins.
