TBF025 – PowerPoint Overhaul Without Stepping on Toes

I was recently asked to dress up a presentation.  I have to breathe a little more retention and interaction into someone else’s work and that was both a privilege and a challenge. I had to do it under time contraints and making sure that no one had hurt feelings.

Thanks!  Dan.
