Last week, my boss walked past my seat and he smiggled.
“Why are you ‘laughing’?” I asked.
“I am not laughing. I know you hate our powerpoint slides.”
“I never said that….. I just wanted to make it more concise, and reduce the load for the audience”
“You don’t have to say, I can see that. HAHA!”
I went back to fixing the deck of slides for a business proposition. I was supposed to include part of the information related to a multivariate testing that I planned to do for my project. But the other parts of the slides were so bad that I ended up re-working everything. 2 hours later, my boss called me into the office to review the slides.
“I am very impressed! I like the slides. My expectation of you gets higher every single day. I want to see more.”
Second time. A month ago, he told me that I will be doing all his presentation slides in future after he saw my first business proposal.
I never thought my work could have such a response. So I went back to my desk, and ran through the few presentations I have done. I tried to note down the changes that I did that received positive feedback, and what were those that were not so good.
Here are some of the stuffs that I did:
Silly, but I do enjoy designing my powerpoint slides. =)
I told my friend about it, and he called me the “Powerpoint Boy”
