Description: The best and most effective presentations capture the audience 
quickly, hold their interest effortlessly, educate and entertain them in equal 
measure, and sometimes even inspire them. 

This class explores simple and effective techniques for achieving those goals 
in any kind of presentation. 

The first half of the class focuses on preparation, content selection, visual 
design, delivery, handling questions and effective techniques for presenting 
various kinds of technical information (code, data, statistics, charts, 
structure diagrams etc.) 

The second half of the course is an in-depth tutorial on improving the 'look 
and feel' of presentation materials – especially Powerpoint/Keynote/Impress 
presentations. In particular, it demonstrates practical techniques for making 
your slides not suck!
