Presenting with PowerPoint
The manager that doesn't have to make at least one presentation each week is fairly rare. Today, we begin the discussion on making effective presentations, beginning with some general guidelines governing the use of tools like Microsoft PowerPoint.
During the podcast, we make reference to a great book by Barbara Minto, "The Pyramid Principle: Logic in Writing and Thinking". Here's a link to her book on Amazon. It's one of our favorite books on management communications and you simply can't go wrong by purchasing copies for both you and your subordinates.
As we note during the show, Mike will be traveling to Europe this week. Most likely we will not be publishing a podcast next week. And, if we do, it will be mid-week instead of Monday. We'll be back on schedule the following week!
