Slides can destroy. Slides can invigorate. Slides can shape the mood of your audience and bend it at will. Effective communication is a pivotal component of a success. Be it presenting at a user group, assisting with a Sales demo, or simply justifying to your boss the purchase of IDE upgrades, you will give a presentation in your career. But the effectiveness of your presentation is not just about being well-spoken and having a prepared outline; the quality of a slide deck has as much impact on a presentation as the quality of the speaker. Learn to harness this power; use it to tell your story effectively, persuasively, and leave your audience inspired.
