PPT – Powerful Presentation Techniques

Selected Resources
With millions of dollars wasted and millions presentations delivered daily, effective presentation tools and skills are essential for organizations of all sizes. To help you with this challenge, you’ll find this compilation of articles, PowerPoint and presentation skills related resources useful. The resources have been put together for my PPT Workshops, web seminars and consulting engagements and to share with readers of PPT– Powerful Presentation Techniques and my followers on Twitter @thePPTChef and @theWebChef. Please e-mail me with any additions or changes you’d recommend for the list.
