This is my latest deck from my Presentation Elevation class I teach for ThinkLA. Like most decks, it may not mean much without me presenting, but there are some good nuggets, tools and tips.

Lots of good pointers on how to build Powerpoint Presentation Decks, How to use your body, hands and voice. I talk about Bill Clinton, Steve Jobs and as always there's a slide with Eddie Van Halen.
