From In-Person to Virtual: How to Engage Your Audience
June 2 & 9

NCMC Corporate & Community Education is offering: "From In-Person to Virtual: How to Engage Your Audience" via Zoom on June 2nd and 9th. Do your presentations suffer from text-heavy slides, too many bullet points, lecture style, disengaged learners, and poor feedback? Presenting virtually was thrust upon most of us as the only way to communicate our message at the start of the Pandemic, but now it’s here to stay. Even the best speakers become less effective delivering virtually. Learn the key skills to connect with your audience by creating and presenting captivating, interactive presentations that will keep your audience engaged and result in getting your message across successfully.

Presenter, Sue Barenholtz has been a leader in the learning and development field for more than 30 years, successfully engaging thousands of participants. Register here.

Pet of the Week- Miranda and Jacqueline!
Meet Miranda! Miranda came to us as a stray with her sister Jacqueline. Miranda is about 10 1/2 years old, but still has lots of life left in her! Her and Jacqueline are very bonded and cry when they are not with each other. We are hoping to keep these two together. They are both sweet little girls that deserve a loving home where they can be loved up on. They get along with other dogs, don't seem to mind cats and love people!
             
Meet Jacqueline! Jacqueline came to us as a stray with her sister Miranda. Jacqueline is about 11 1/2 years old and has some health issues. As she came to us as stray, we are not sure what has happened in her life to cause these issues, but it could just be old age. She does have some muscle loss/arthritis in her back end that will probably require her to be on an anti-inflammatory for the rest of her life. Her and Miranda are very bonded and cry when they are not with each other. We are hoping to keep these two together. They are both sweet little girls that deserve a loving home where they can be loved up on. They get along with other dogs, don't seem to mind cats and love people! Click HERE for more pictures!!
