About I have been recognized by the media and my clients as a presentation expert. I have authored seven books on effective PowerPoint presentations and I consult on high-stakes presentations. I am one of two Canadians, and one of only twelve people in North America to be recognized by Microsoft with the PowerPoint Most Valuable Professional Award for my contributions to the PowerPoint presentation community. My ideas have appeared in publications around the world. Participants in my workshops leave with practical steps they can take immediately to improve their presentations. Attendees say that they will never be able to look at a PowerPoint presentation the same way again.
