Presentation Tools

When you need to create a presentation, do not automatically launch PowerPoint. The use of presentation tools should be determined by need, not availability. Presenters with good speaking skills don’t need slides as they talk, and if they do use them, their slides elaborate on their ideas, they do not repeat them.

Whether you use PowerPoint, Keynote or Prezi, remember that these are only tools and do not work for every instance.
