Many companies during their annual meetings require their speakers to follow presentation guidelines supposed to be submitted in advance, that will be both displayed and printed as handouts.

  47. Acknowledgments I'd like to thank Garr Reynolds. Thanks for feed-back, thanks for allowing me to use his word “slideument”. He did nothing directly and didn’t help… however this slideshow would not have been possible before 2005, before discovering Garr Reynolds’s website and publications. It’s a long journey to get the best of Garr Reynolds’s provocative mix of illumination inspiration, education, and guidance. It may change much more than presentations : it may change the speaker himself, it changed myself. Thanks for this, Garr. Jean-François MESSIER Photo Credit iStockphoto.com
