5 years ago, I teached in a business college for 1 semester. I am not given a lesson plan only the book reference, main topics and some pointers. Just like in my master’s degree program for 2 years, we are to research, prepare and present, so that’s what I did. Every time I do my lecture or reporting, I produce 3 things: 1. Handouts for my audience 2. My Notes 3. And my Engaging PowerPoint slides (with the use of a projector.)
I used to run my specialty construction business for more than 10 years. I specialized in solar power system, cctv, granite countertop and modular cabinets. Every time I see my prospects or clients, I do a PowerPoint presentation. My objective is to make them see why they must deal with us. I help them see our honest work experience, features, benefits and advantage of my specialty products.
I have experienced, practiced and not an expert yet, because I only do it for personal consumption. Now that I transitioned to creating slides for other business owners and professionals as my chosen specialization. I will continue to research, study and practice how to be better in designing and creating an appealing slide.
I have uploaded some slides in my LinkedIn account. And I’m planning to create more until I am loaded with projects. From Chris Do(my mentor) “when business dries up, reinvent yourself”
