Jan. 2019 Florida Presentations Recap.

16 Clubs and 1 Conference is what kept me busy for this Month.

https://1drv.ms/v/s!AhqxANJ1R0yZivFZMIOf6sbH93OGXg
In total, I've presented "Protecting Your Digital Life" to 997 attendees.
I hope they all learned something and that many of them will become Avast users.
Next month, I'll be in Arizona

1/28/2019 Valencia Reserve Computer Club - Boynton Beach, FL

My final presentation in Florida this year was well attended by a smaller club.
They may be small in size but not in the amount of questions they asked.
SecureLine was again the most asked about product followed by the Password Manager.

Today via 2 presentations I was able to interact with quite a few
attendees of the NWFACUG Computer Tech Conference 2019

There were a lot of questions during and following the presentations.
Avast's SecureLine and the free version of Avast received the most questions.
I was also able to visit some of the other classes and really enjoyed the one
on 3D Printing.

This is why it's hard to stick to a diet.

Another enjoyable presentation for a club that had a lot of questions during
and after the presentation.

I even caught a member installing the Avast Mobil Security App during the presentation.

One of the gifts that the club made available had the winning ticket taped
to the bottom on the chair.

I guess that's one way to entice seniors to exercise.

When you're a diabetic, sometimes this can be detrimental to your health.
