Shirley's slideshow of APSS 2011-12 in pictures


Published on

At the 30 July 2012 monthly meeting of APSS (Asia Professional Speakers Singapore) I talked through a slideshow showing snippets from the past year. I've added a commentary here so that people who were unable to attend the meeting can see it too. I hope you enjoy it.
