After you have worked through the Foundation Course and practiced it, Malcom Lewis’ blog may give you some insights on advanced slide topics.
In the video linked below, the slide topics and order are different than those on our website. However, if you have worked through the Foundation Course and presented to investors a few times, the video could give you some ideas on alternate ways to present information to your audience.
