    Three Quotes From This Episode 

    • "I think it's having a structure for your presentation and making sure that your message is simple, clear, and consistent."
    • "Effective communication is really simple. And I think it allows time for discussion, input, and analysis - not just consumed by PowerPoint presentations."
    • "So what I've seen is the volume of slides. Sometimes people try to shove in too many slides in a 30-minute presentation...they're talking so quickly, and they're moving one slide after the other. And it's frustrating because you feel like you're almost held hostage...and it's just no fun."
