253 – Presentation Zen

It’s time to “hit the books” WELSTech-style as we discuss chapter one of the latest WELSTech book selection, Presentation Zen. You’ll also appreciate free Bible images of the Christmas story, a PNG image compression tool, many “Pin”-teresting tech finds, and more goodies just for you!

The discussion:

Book kickoff – Presentation Zen by Garr Reynolds is the newest WELSTech book selection.  Each month Martin and Sallie will discuss a section of the book, beginning with chapter one on today’s episode.  We learn that good presentation design requires starting over and rethinking how presentations are done.
