Make Your Presentations Sparkle

Date: 11/01/2021

Buyers and purchasing managers are called upon to make a presentation at a meeting for various purposes. It may be to report on the progress of a project, or about a supply problem, or about other business activity. How you make your presentation can influence how both your peers and your superiors view you.

One way to get favorable opinions is to include graphic displays or charts on a screen or in a handout. Programs to help you prepare the graphs, in black or in color, include Excel and Word.
