Using technology to present your ideas
There's more to PowerPoint than a few slides
For many people the thoughts of standing up and conducting a business presentation is a very scary notion. Many would rather run a 2 minute mile. For others it is an easy task and something they relish. Whatever camp you fall into, it is always worth checking the type of presentation you have put together and seeing if it is really appropriate.
This is a small business IT guide, so we are not here to offer you presentation skills training, rather some tips on using PC presentation software.
By carrying out a really great business presentation you will be able to win more business, make more money and prove your worth to customers. The good news is that creating a business presentation will not cost any money, apart from the upfront cost of the software.

This is one of the surest ways of loosing a deal and must be avoided at all costs.

This channel will tell you how to avoid such a gaff.
