  • Dear Mr Maiden..what do you suggest when we have to presenting our project/research report, etc to the government, or some castumer? Because there are so many audience/costumer that need more data, and ask blah..blah words just like document. Don't know what the meaning of Power Point. Some people who work at public service, lecture did it too. (off course i am not able yet..just to learned and understand what is the power of our subject / ideas must share to whom i have to..and I learned it more and more hope be better for next) . Thank you very much for your attention, I really apreciated. Best regards
