Do you know the difference between a mediocre presentation and an extra-ordinary one?
Mediocre presentation usually filled up with text everywhere. It uses bullet point as a standard template and often boring.
Whereas, an extra-ordinary presentation has the capability to catch the audience attention through pictuces that communicate, text that make you think, and has a strong message.
To see how the best PowerPoint presentation looks like, I have chosen 3 presentations, which considered as “The Best Presentation” in Slideshare.net
