This document teaches the basics of developing an effective business presentation. It covers methodologies widely practiced by top management consulting firms, such as McKinsey, Bain, and BCG. This document is divided into 3 sections:

*Storyboarding. Storyboarding refers to developing the "story" that the presentation will follow. Please note there are many different frameworks for creating storyboards. This just covers one of the methods.

*Slide Structuring. Ever notice how you can spot a consulting deck almost immediately? They embody a similar look and feel. This section dissects the framework used to create the consulting slide, which consists of a Headline, Body, and Bumper.

*Graph Design. This section teaches you how to select the proper graph for your slide.

Presentation development is a useful skill to have, because presentations is one of the mostly used communication tools in any workplace. Furthermore, presentations are work products that are easily and widely circulated both within and to outside an organization. For a consultant, this skill is even more critical, because PowerPoint presentations are often all that is left with the client after the engagement ends.
