How do I present a seminar outside my branch?

Different Ways to Present a Seminar

Different Ways to Present a Seminar 

Use a Thumbnail Drive and Projector (Use JPG File)

You may use a projector that has a USB port to display JPG file. To do this:

  • Download the ZIP JPG file to a non-Edward Jones computer
  • UnZIP the file using ZIP utility software. Read our FAQs for more information.
  • Save the entire folder containing seminar slide JPGs to a USB thumbdrive (with available space)
  • Insert USB thumbdrive into the projector's USB port. Please note, Edward Jones branch computers do not provide access to USB ports.
  • Follow projector manufacturer instructions for displaying the presentation using JPEGs

To use this option, you will need to use a non-Edward Jones computer with internet access to download/save seminar files to a USB drve.

Note: Edward Jones branch computers are not able to use USB thumbdrives. Most Edward Jones projectors do have a working USB port.

Use a PC computer and a Projector (Use PDF File)

You may use a non-Edward Jones PC and a projector to display the PDF file outside of your branch office. For the PDF to work properly, the non-Edward Jones computer must have PDF viewing software such as Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Acrobat Reader. If the non-Edward Jones computer does not have a PDF viewer, download the PC version of Adobe Reader for free on the Adobe website.

To show an Adobe PDF seminar as a slide show follow these instructions:

  • Right mouse click on the PDF file for your selected seminar
  • Choose "Save Target As...". Be sure to save the seminar file in a directory or folder where you can easily find it later
  • Open the PDF file using Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • Select View on the toolbar
  • Select Full Screen View on the drop down menu or click "Ctrl + L"
  • Move through the presentation by using the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard or the Page Up and Page Down keys.
  • Close the presentation by pressing the Esc key on your keyboard

Save a Seminar to a CD or DVD (Use PDF File)

To save to CD or DVD, your computer must have the following:

  • A CD or DVD drive that is capable of writing (or burning) data to a CD or DVD. Please note, Edward Jones branch computers can not write files to CDs or DVDs.
  • A software program that can write the data to the disc. This software frequently comes with the drive.
  • There are many different drives and formats available, so we suggest following the instructions provided by the software program on how to create a CD.
