Introduction

Presentations: from your laptop, the projector or on slides. Wherever it may be from, it's suddenly show time - it's like your answer to the creativity and magic associated with cinema. A presentation contains your identity and your stamp. There's a script to be written, and actors in forms of text, images, sound, video and more...

So, how do you form the story. Which tools help you all the way. What's your hardware and software? And, even if everything else is tuned into concert, what happens when the dreaded 'creativity block' strikes you.

From solutions to oil your rusted imagination, to storyboards and ideas, you'll find them all here. If you are using a particularly fine piece of software and want to learn more about that, you'll learn that too.

But wait, there's more. Presentations are about first impressions - new company, new product, new service, new idea, new strategy, or old wine in new bottles too. There's no way you can allow spoiling the first impression, it sticks like glue in the mind of the viewer. Let's learn how to add glitter to that glue!

This site is not the end or culmination of a project, nor is it a dead end. If you would like to participate, share your knowledge, or just communicate, do get in touch - this is a link to the feedback page.
