Presentations In A Hurry: Create an organized, professional presentation in half the time

Are you spending nights and weekends slaving over PowerPoint presentations? Presentations In A Hurry will help you regain your life and get back to your business.

Presentations in a Hurry: 26 Formats That Persuade CD PowerPoint shells covering 26 of the most common presentation scenarios, from problem analysis, communicating bad news, Investor Relations, New Project Proposal and Product Launch to Project Progress Report, fund raising, and many other topics. Simply follow the content recommendations and, once you drop in the text, your presentation will be complete. Every shell also includes a template design, plus custom graphics and appropriate imagery. Save hours of time creating your slide presentations. More importantly, they will look professional and enhance your confidence while talking.

Why do you need Presentations in a Hurry?

The presenter's challenge is to organize the data so the audience understands and, usually, agrees to take specific action. If you are like most people, you were never trained to organize data—knowing what to leave out, putting it in easily understandable chunks, and showing it graphically. Too many presenters feel frustrated because they know their presentations are poorly organized, visually cluttered, and hard to follow.

Do you want to use PowerPoint like a pro?

With this system, anyone can create presentations that really harness the amazing toolkit within PowerPoint. Even people with little or no experience will be able to create carefully organized, attractive presentations that hold their audiences' attention. And because these presentation shells walk you through the process so quickly, they free up your time to focus on what you do best.

Program Introduction

Each Presentations in a Hurry topic has two PowerPoint files

The presentation file includes 10 to 15 slides that organize your content. Graphical images help you display what you want to say. Besides the professionally designed backgrounds, every file has a plain dark and a plain light background to use with diagrams and charts. Notes on several slides suggest the best way to design a powerful presentation. Every topic gives you a slide to define your audience objective. By filling it out before you create your slides, you will include only the information needed to reach your presentation's objective. You won't spend time inputting information of little interest to your audience.

The "how-to" file tells you when to use this shell and shows you a filled out audience-objective slide. You can read advice on how to create slides and how to deliver an effective presentation on this topic. You also see 10 Delivery Tips that will remind you of best practices for presenters.
