Presentations: from your laptop, the projector or on slides. Wherever it may be from, it's suddenly show time. It's akin to the creativity and magic associated with cinema. It's something with 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 working well, what happens when the dreaded creativity block strikes you?

From solutions to cure rusted imaginations, 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!
