Wow, PowerPoint has come a long way. Recent reports are that the Atlanta Falcons of the NFL hired their new General Manager based on a web conference interview in which the new GM outlined his ideas in a PowerPoint presentation. For those of you who keep holding out hope that PowerPoint will just go away, I hate to break the news that it isn't going anywhere. If you want to advance your career, you need to learn how to create persuasive visuals and deliver presentations both live and over the web. If you've never delivered a presentation via a web conferencing service before, check out the webinar
I did last year that shows you how to get started: http://www.speakernetnews.com/tsem/ts20070213.html

). I wonder if I'll get an invite to the Super Bowl
as a consultant for a high ranking NFL executive looking to move up - not likely, but nice to dream.
