Wills & EstatesApr 2, 2011

Very satisfied with the content and presentation of the webinar. However, I was very disappointed that, despite repeated requests, the handout was not made available ahead of time. If you print the handout after the webinar has started, you're bound to miss some of what is being said. Also, although the file name of the handout was visible, there was no link attached. I also suggest that Suzanne pause briefly between terms to allow for note taking and, without the handout, note taking would be easier if the slides were numbered.

Webinar HandoutMay 7, 2011

Dear Tina,

Thank you for your comments. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the webinar. The idea of providing a handout before the webinar was my idea, and the Proz.com staff readily agreed it would be helpful to attendees. The handout was uploaded prior to the webinar, but it appears that due to its size, it was not easy for everyone to download it from the link provided. We will keep this in mind for the future, as well as the thought of pausing more for note-taking purposes during the webinar. Thanks for your thoughts.

Suzanne Deliscar
