Presentation Zen

by Garr Reynolds


To be great in sales, you need to be a presentation master. Presentation Zen is not a technical manual for PowerPoint, but a guide from a communications expert on how to create striking presentations that will leave any audience rapt.

Reynolds tries to break you of bad habits and approach your presentations differently. From preparation to design to delivery, this book will take you from an amateur presenter to an unquestionable professional.
