Description
This is a presentation that I gave to the Global Business class at the Sheridan College Davis Campus a couple of days ago. Students are assumed to not have their own website at present and the intent was to give them tools not only to set up their own websites, but also help their clients make decisions when it comes to their websites. While the slide deck itself isn't much, know that the presentation went on more than an hour with great discussions and many questions.
