Over the past ten years Wayne has frequently used PowerPoint. Along with many other people he has been subjected to countless presentations that leave the audience sleepy, bored, or insulted. These wasted presentations prompted Wayne to ask "What is the best way to use PowerPoint to get a message across?" Wayne's research resulted in an innovative process that everyone can use to drastically improve any PowerPoint presentation.
Wayne's book "Dodging the Bullet Points - 5.5 Steps to Presenting with PowerPoint" helps presenters all over the world deliver effective presentations by simply following a repeatable process. Following this easy process will let you create and deliver a PowerPoint presentation that gets your message across, and makes your audience remember you're your point is.
PowerPoint Presentations consist of slideshows and delivery skills. Many people using PowerPoint are not trained presenters and gain tremendous benefits from a small amount of coaching.

To help common people understand and master the mechanics of public speaking, Wayne created the audio CD " How To Give A Better Speech."
