Rotary Canadian Powerpoint Presentation


Published on

A power point presentation that I am going to use to show the Norwegian Rotary Club when I arrive in Norway.

  • Hi Brock, great presentation! I loved the way you structured it and chose to show some of the many beautiful places in our country. Just a suggestion, perhaps you should include a couple of slides about Vancouver and mention the Olympic games. It will be a good idea to include a slide about your sponsoring club - The Rotary Club or Red Deer East. I can send you couple of pictures if you decide to do that. Also, I think 'outdoors' is one word, but maybe double check.

    Have a fantastic time and please keep us posted. Enjoy every moment of it!
