You will undoubtedly have to give a presentation in your career. If it hasn't happened yet, it will. Maybe the Sales Department needs a technical resource to give a demo for that new software. Maybe you are doing the selling as you try to convince your boss to approve that awesome development productivity tool. Maybe you want to get into speaking, presenting the latest technology trends to your peers. Yet, everybody has been there: a presentation where you spend so much time reading the content from a slide that you ignore the content from the speaker. Perhaps it was a presentation where the deck was full of animated transitions right out of a 1970's made-for-TV movie. Maybe it was the slideshow that was there simply because the presenter felt obligated to have one. The quality of a slide deck can have as much impact on a presentation as the quality of the speaker. It can destroy. It can invigorate. It can shape the mood of your audience and bend it at will. Harness that power; use it to your advantage to tell your story and leave your audience inspired.
