The PowerPoint deck is too often seen as a replacement for the human sales pitch and a visual whitepaper to be packed with every conceivable data point. The result? Visual distraction and competition for mindshare between presenter and his/her slides. Effective PowerPoint decks compliment their presenter, drive home key points being conveyed, and provoke deeper thought and consideration through compelling visual hooks. My background: Over 10 years experience working for a Fortune 100 (technology & software) company, delivering sales presentations to North American Fortune 500 customers, and designing PowerPoint decks to suit each job, audience, and goal. Proven methodology to ensure slides contain the information you need rather than all the information you have.
