PowerPoint makes the Boss Button
If you're watching the NCAA March Madness games at work over the Internet through the CBSSports.com feed, check out what you see when you click on the "Boss Button". That's right, you get a PowerPoint slide designed by Dilbert creator Scott Adams. You know you've made it when you get featured on the "Boss Button".
I have been recognized by the media and my clients as a presentation expert. I have authored seven books on effective PowerPoint presentations and I consult on high-stakes presentations including one used to brief one of President Obama’s cabinet ministers. I am one of two Canadians, and one of only twelve people in North America to be recognized by Microsoft with the PowerPoint Most Valuable Professional Award for my contributions to the PowerPoint presentation community. My ideas have appeared in publications around the world. Participants in my workshops leave with practical steps they can take immediately to improve their presentations. Attendees say that they will never be able to look at another PowerPoint presentation the same way again because I redefine what an effective presentation should look like.
