Presentation 101

These slides are based on Garr Reynolds' great books 'Presentation Zen' and 'Presentation Zen Design' (http://www.garrreynolds.com). They describe a bunch of best practices that everyone who wants to create outstanding presentations should follow, including tips for the preparation, design, and performance.

The presentation itself is based on these principles, hence the subtitle "... or how I designed this presentation".
