Resource for Presentations

And a new series I am starting called Wow!That Presentation was Awesome!(This is for fee, $50. The first three slides are teaser but contain valuable information and then you hit the "toll booth.")

For Some Examples:
Go over to Slide Share and search for "worlds best presentation" examples.
