I Was Invited For a Financial Planning Seminar


It is a Saturday afternoon today and I am here in the office. No, I am not doing an overtime. I am just here to prepare a powerpoint presentation since the learning and development team invited me for a financial planning seminar which will be attended by fellow employees.

At first, I was amazed when I received the invitation to be a resource speaker. I am not used in speaking in public and so I must devote an ample amount of time to prepare for such presentation.

This will be held next week. I already prepared an outline of my presentation and here’s how it looks like:

  1. your outline looks very nice — from A to D. the participants are so lucky they’d have seminar like this. how long will you be presenting this lecture? i doubt if you can o this in such a short time. good luck. 🙂

  2. @ Snow: Hopefully, you can attend. 🙂

    @ Paul: Thanks for the feedback. I already finished the powerpoint presentation and passed it over to the learning and development team for their feedbacks. I also doubt the time given for me to present would be enough. I was just given 2 hours. I will try to upload a PDF file of my presentation here once the event was finished for the benefit of my readers. 🙂
