There are plenty of books teaching PowerPoint basics. This is NOT one of those books! Instead, this book teaches you to how to create effective business presentations and deliverables.

How do I structure my story? How do I lay out my slide? What diagram should I be using? These are just some of the questions this eBook will address in detail, as we discuss the methodologies, frameworks, and tricks used to create professional presentations in the business world. These are the same methods practiced by leading strategy consulting, investment banking, and marketing firms; and taught in top MBA programs. Topics range from basic to advanced and apply to all versions of PowerPoint.

PowerPoint is one of the most important tools in the corporate world. Its widespread adoption spans across roles, industries, and geographies. Whether you're a college intern or a c-level executive, you will need to create effective presentations that engage your audience and effectively communicate your messages.

Having the ability to create clear, cohesive, and persuasive presentations will give you an invaluable advantage in the work place. It will also gain you recognition. Presentations are tangible work products that are easily and very quickly dispersed within and outside an organization.

This is the only book available that teaches presentation principles developed and practiced by management & strategy consultants. Frameworks and methodologies preached here are the same used by top consulting firms (e.g. McKinsey, Bain, BCG, Booz, Accenture, Deloitte, etc.) when they deliver their final presentations after million-dollar engagements. Some of this material is also covered by top MBA programs (including Harvard, Stanford, and Cornell) for students looking to enter the business world.

Learning and mastering the teachings in this book will truly give you an unparalleled advantage over your peers.

Here are some of the topics covered in this PowerPoint book:

1) Covers the initial steps of setting up your PowerPoint button shortcuts*, keyboard shortcut keys*, and the Consulting Presentation Framework.

2) Getting Your Story Straight – Learn to construct an insightful and cohesive story for your audience using concepts like the Pyramid Principle and MECE. Understand the psychology of your audience and how to structure each slide accordingly using the PCPV framework.

3) The Art of PowerPoint – Learn basic to advanced diagramming techniques (including how to construct "The Missing PowerPoint Diagram"). Understand the multitude of charts at your disposals, when to use each kind, and how to design them in PowerPoint.

In addition, this eBook package includes 2 bonus PowerPoint documents (included in the secondary file ZIP):

1) Business Slides Reference Pack – Well over 60 slides taken from real executive presentations. You can't find anything else like this on the web. These slides have been scrubbed of confidential data.

2) eBook PowerPoint Toolkit – A collection of 50+ editable PowerPoint diagrams, PowerPoint templates, icons, charts, and tables.

•  Caveat: The PowerPoint setup info is based on an older version of Microsoft PowerPoint. However, concepts behind setting up the shortcuts can be applied to newer versions of PowerPoint.


"More and more executives don't want to get bogged down with fancy powerpoints and frills that don't add value. The techniques in your book have been great in helping me communicate my message in a crisp, straightforward manner yet still produce professional tools." – Manager at Deloitte & Touche

"I didn't have a significant amount of powerpoint experience prior to b-school so the learning curve was steep. Time is limited and the amount of work to get up to speed wasn't realistic. The learnppt book and accompanying out of the box templates have been instrumental in helping me manage my time and still get the job done." – Columbia Business School Alum
