Subject Re: About speakers presentations
Date Thu, 13 Oct 2016 08:24:44 GMT
Hi Rich,

Thank you very much for the very detailed explanation! I'm going to do a 
little "web-training" about presentations. And I'm very bad to 
templating, I will kindly accept the ASF ones :)
Can also I ask here for templates or will be they accessible from 
another resource?

Best regards,
