  • I fully agree. Based on my own experiences, presentations that focused on the flow of business ideas have kept their 'existence'. How? By the fact that views and number of downloads increased with time. Others, which did not conform to the rule, experienced dwindling interest

  • Thank you for sharing your insight.
    Your insight challenges the typical standard quo of cute/cool images = great/ memorable presentations.

    I agree with you; I also firmly believe that design excellence does not carry enough weight on its own.

    Instead design excellence MUST be paired with knowledgeable content, audience awareness, and follow a logical path of thought.
