It's your time to give a technical presentation. Do you know your audience? What are their expectations? What's the most effective way to present your information? Do you wish you knew more about PowerPoint?

Get the answers you need as Robin Roberts shares his expertise with you.

For forty years Robbin Roberts has designed and developed hundreds of mechanical devices, instruments & test systems for use in the consumer, computer, medical, aerospace and automotive industries. He is considered to be a local area design expert and implementation engineer. Robbin captures the design intent using SolidWorks and CAD models, then conveys them to the engineering team for project execution. Quite often his photorealistic images are used by the internal marketing, sales, manufacturing and service organizations as well.
