PowerPoint presentations can be powerful, but most often they make viewers squint across the room at tiny type crammed on the screen while the presenter reads it to them. Ugh.

“People complain that it is too difficult to condense vital information in a presentation. Social media proves the opposite,” she writes.
“What is the main point in 140 characters or less? What if your presentation was thirty seconds instead of thirty minutes?” What a great way to keep your slides lean and easy to comprehend!
