Recently a highly respected media by me – Business Insider – wrote an article about PowerPoint and how it should be removed from schools and universities because it was making the young kinds and students stupid. See, that’s a bit of an extreme opinion and as someone who owns a business that’s main focus is to make people achieve more with their presentations, I decided to quickly write my thoughts around that and as you will see we will keep it extremely short and simple. Here’s what I think and yes, please feel free to quote me on that:
Because 99% of the people out there do not know how to use PowerPoint properly, that does not mean it sucks!
Business Insider, you guys are great and I love your work, but this time you are just plain and simple wrong.

This one below – I am speechless! Thank you, Andrey and Oracle team! I have received a lot of amazing feedback in the last couple of years, but this one really reminds me once again why I do what I do and I am glad that I was able(and will continue) to help with my knowledge and experience!
That’s it. That’s the whole post.
