Financial Slides: The Presentation Podcast Episode #15

The Presentation Podcast

 

Episode #15, Financial Slides is live.

Sandy is off this week and pinch hitting for her is fellow PowerPoint MVP and good friend Dave Paradi of Think Outside the Slide. Dave trains companies all over the world on how to present better with an emphasis on financial and business data and numbers. The kind of thing you would expect from a presentation expert with an MBA. Dave has written numerous books on the subject, and publishes an annual survey on the greatest frustrations people have with financial presentations. (Spoiler alert: the two most mentioned words are “Confusing” and “Boring.”) Take a listen as we talk about financial decks.

15 Startup Pitch Decks

Attach.io has posted 15 startup pitch decks from companies big and small, but all the resulted in raising significant capital.

As Guy Kawasaki has said, if you can’t explain your business in ten slides, you don’t understand your business and I don’t want to invest in it.

Check out all the decks here.
