    What Can College Teach Us About PowerPoint? A Lot. – P3 Episode 7

    It took a tour of colleges for a light bulb to go off in my head. That's when I realized that PowerPoint dread begins at an early age. But there are valuable lessons to be learned about how your average, everyday business presentation can benefit from some "big room" thinking from the presenters who do it right.

    In this episode we learn to approach presentations--every presentation--like a big lecture, or a TED Talk, and how that translates into huge time saving and a more focused message and audience.

    In this episode of P3, we tackle one of our top 3 problems with practical tips on how to bring your data to life, and let it enlighten your audience, rather than lose them. Your data has a story to tell. Make sure it's being heard!

    Fixing the Enormous Cost of Sales Presentations – P3 Episode 5

    If you're a sales executive, there's nothing more frustrating than an office full of salespeople working on non-sales tasks.

    There IS a way to build an internal machine to support the sales team and let them focus on selling. Along the way you'll save money, and your company's brand.  In this episode we dissect the cost of doing it the wrong way, and outline the requirements and benefits of building a sales presentation machine that let's salespeople do what they do best...sell.

    No matter if you're in front of a large group or giving a status update to a group of co-workers, your ability to deliver a meaningful presentation rests on the central idea behind it. Let's build your Big Idea!
