Recently I was asked to judge a series of presentations made by a group of masters students. The exercise was based on a live project we are working on at The Duffy Agency. They were presenting their marketing plans for a beverage we will be launching in the Spring. After the presentation Pontus, one of the students who presented, asked if there was a website or book he could read to sharpen his presentation skills even further. None came to mind, then I remembered this gem. It was sent to me by a client a few years back. She swears it was not intended as a not-so-subtle hint. But she did e-mail it to me WHILE I was presenting to her management team. In any event its funny and offers some good practical advice. If you know of any other resources that might help Pontus, please comment.
Thanks to Pontus for the question and to Alexei Kapterev for the answer. Download Download Death-by-powerpoint in PDF format.
