Rafi Haladjian a écrit au début des années 2000 un très joli essai... que dis-je, une délicieuse méthode, pour "devenir riche, beau et intelligent avec Word, Excel et Powerpoint".
La bureautique a pris une place importante dans la structuration de nos échanges professionnels... le contenant limitant même parfois le contenu... la forme prenant parfois le pas sur le fond.
Cela dit, 'l'épreuve" de la présentation tient souvent de la véritable perfomance. Bien exécutée, elle assoit un propos auprès d'une audience béhate. Elle est devenue une figue imposée dans la bonne promotion d'un projet.
Ainsi, "4 Fantastiques" et SlideShare organisent en ce moment un grand concours de présentation.
