Building a Presentation in Under 24 hours

Building a Presentation in Under 24 hours

I really only had about 6 hours to create it and practice it.
For those who ever get stuck looking at a blank page in Powerpoint, this is for you.
Unfortunately, the pdf format of this kills the nice walk-through of slide 7.
If you need help creating a presentation or help to present it, especially if you are a startup working on your pitch deck, contact me so my team can help you.

  6. Keep It Simple
    Avoid cluttering your slides
    with too much information or
    too many images.
    Instead, focus on a few key
    points and make sure your
    message is clear and easy to
    understand.
