Have You Ever…Been inspired/intrigued by speech or presentation and wished that you could remember the hook, a week or month later?Wished that you could review key information from a presentation or speech in peace at your own pace?Well… your prayers have been answered. Today I‘d like to tell you about SlideShare and why you should be using it.
What‘s In It For Me?Information sharing from workshops & seminarsCan share information that isn‘t handy to show when presentation/speech is givenAre there any actions or take aways that you want to share with your audience?Your presentation can live on & other people can find it, long after you‘ve given it
What‘s In It For Me? Continued People remember only a small portion of what they hear. This can reinforce and strengthen what you‘ve presented Handy place to show resources related to your topic When you do have to cut something out during your presentation or speech, it can still stay in!!
