Power Through Presentations is a light-hearted but practical guide to overcome one of the most common challenges that faces millions of business professionals today: translating ideas into sleek presentations. Other books target presenters who are taking the stage to speak to a room full of people. But most of us create a presentation deck that is then emailed or reviewed over the phone. There’s a massive underserved market of business professionals who need help to create effective PowerPoint® slides in their day-to-day work. Some common challenges are addressed: • How can I turn facts and data into compelling visual images? • How can I create a concise project update to review with my boss? • I have a ton of detail on this service we’re going to launch. What’s the best way to explain it so it’s understood even when I’m not there to speak to it? • Where can I get a useful PowerPoint® examples without researching for hours?
