Do you need slides? When Ro works with you on your presentation, keynote or speech, he’ll challenge you to find the core of your message, the soul of your story and handcraft it until it can stand on its own. Only then will the magic of enhancing your presentation with slide design, presentation skills and creative ways to engage your audience begin. His mantra is “follow the story, not the slides.” Did we mention he’s a PowerPoint expert?
