To Slide or Not to Slide: Episode 9

It’s important to understand that slides are not mandatory, no matter what anyone tries to tell you. Nor are they a crutch or a cheat sheet.

In this episode, you can expect to learn the truth about the use of slides in your presentations:

      • When to use — and not to use — slides as part of your presentation;
      • How to create a winning look for your visual images while avoiding distracting bells and whistles;
      • What to do when your audio/visual equipment dies.
