I custom designed this PowerPoint template for our agency and I put together the presentation. Since Compliance can be a dull subject, the Compliance Manager wanted to me to create a “fun feel” presentation. You will notice that in the music clip on one of the slides and some of the graphics. Please view in slide show mode to get the best feel of the presentation and to hear the sound.
