This afternoon a client made my day. I am going to give a course on presentations at the company she works in. She told me: “What people here usually do is spend their time preparing the support, not the presentation itself.”
This sentence says it all. The visual aid (PowerPoint) is not the presentation.
In addition, she told me: “I refuse to use the same template as always. How are you going to do something different if everything looks the same? “
It is no coincidence that she is highly regarded in her company.
