MacVoices #14184: David Sparks on Delivering Your Best Presentations

David Sparks shares some of the wisdom he has obtained in his new  MacSparky Field Guide, Presentations. As someone who does presentations for a living, David has gained a great deal of  information on what makes (or breaks) a great presentation. With a focus on Keynote, David addresses not only the “nuts and bolts” of presentation creation, but also the mindset of the presenter and some simple tips that helps set you apart. Sharing some of the book’s content, David tells us what you’ll find there, why he felt it was important to include a huge amount of video, and how you can benefit from Presentations even if you aren’t an iBooks user.
