So you want to learn Prezi!?

The emails have been rolling in asking for more information and training on Prezi. My in-box is so full it could burp with all of your requests for more! I can agree with this enthusiasm--Prezi is a unique way to spice up a presentation.

To answer the most popular question in my email in-box this week: I am not currently offering any webinars on Prezi though I do continue to offer in-person training in a variety of topics and encourage email communication from anyone interested (

To answer the second most popular question in my email in-box this week: "Where can we get more information?"

So, click, create, and zoom your way to an engaging presentation and don't forget to update and share your stories of success, tips, or advice for others who are equally excited about Prezi.
