‘People think in stories, not statistics.’  - Ariana Huffington

How to Craft a High Impact Powerpoint Presentation

Posted by StellaPop on Aug 21, 2019 7:52:00 AM

As a business leader, giving talks and presentations is par for the course. But one bugbear that even the most experienced speaker tends to struggle with is the infamous Powerpoint presentation. Used well, Powerpoint can be an effective tool for engaging your audience and illustrating your point. But all too often these slideshows become unwieldy, repetitive and text-heavy.
