Unhappy Text field that will populate other fields


I would like to have a master title that is possible for people to edit without accessing the Slide Master. My plan is to have a text box on the first page that can be filled in by anyone and that will automatically populate a text box on of top of every page.
I am totally stuck here...

This is only possible if you can code or know a coder.

Sample code
Code:
Sub copyTitles()
Dim oshp As Shape
Dim osld As Slide
Dim strtext As String
If ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes.HasTitle Then _
strtext = ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes.Title.TextFrame.TextRange
For Each osld In ActivePresentation.Slides
If osld.Shapes.HasTitle Then osld.Shapes.Title.TextFrame.TextRange.Text = strtext
Next
End Sub

see www.pptalchemy.co.uk/vba.html for how to use code

Thank you very much, I will find one, or perhaps you can sell me the service?
