CTN October Meeting

  • 15 Oct 2009
  • 5:45 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Front Runner Boardroom(lower level), 21 St. Clair Avenue East

Our next meeting will be held in the Front Runner Boardroom (basement) on Thursday October 15th. As reported earlier we will have three – 20 minute presentations made by our own members. We have also been asked to have a discussion around the recent events at Nexient.

This is also a reminder that your $50 annual dues are required by this meeting to continue receiving any of our emails, be on our webpage, join in our LinkedIn Group, etc. You can still come to our bi-monthly meetings if you want.

Here is brief overview of what our three presentations will be on:

  1. Mary Lacroix - will be giving people an overview of Captivate 4, a demo and eLearning tool from Adobe's Technical Communication Suite. She will show how you can record software simulations or demonstrations, and how to create a presentation from scratch using imported media and Captivate's own drawing, animation and design tools.
  2. Brian Pembleton – will talk about a product called Online Backup that his company ComputerMaster provides for its clients. ONLINE BACKUP is a set-and-forget data security system designed to make the process of data protection simple and automatic. See attachment for more details.
  3. Zaimin Karmali - will be doing a presentation on Quickbooks Pro 2009 and the basics of how to use it for a small business. 

We are going to add on to our Agenda at the END of these presentations a request by some current and past CTN members to have a discussion as to what can be done about the recent events at Nexient regarding unpaid invoices and the new direction of the company. It is requested that you bring notes, details, contacts you have used when chasing payment, collection agencies, lawyers, etc. Also, we have a member that would like to discuss how we can share information about companies that are showing signs of weakness when paying so that fewer of us will get caught in this kind of mess next time.
