Everyday, by some estimates, people deliver roughly 30 million PowerPoint presentations. And 95 percent of them suck.

Then people blame PowerPoint, as if the car caused the accident. It’s a shame, really, because PowerPoint can be a great visual aid for a presentation. But it’s not the presentation itself. You are.

This webinar, presented by Dave Yewman, focuses on five tips that can help prevent a PowerPoint presentation train wreck. We all know the first few seconds of a speech are critical - but how do you maximize your ability to grab the audience? How do you prepare for that? How do you develop slides that help you, not hurt you? Avoiding, "Death by PowerPoint" (sometimes called “Show up and throw up”) is a key skill for executives. Gain some tips and ask your burning questions in this Webinar.
