Who doesn’t love a pretty slide deck? As evangelists, our presentations are one of the key ways to get our point across to our audiences, and we need to learn how to be as effective as we can with our slide decks.
The choices you make in your slide design directly influences what impact your story has on your audience. Understanding simple design elements will allow you to make more compelling slides, which will result in more memorable and helpful presentations.
