In today’s world, it’s rare to find a time when every member of your office team can gather in the conference room at once. When you’re making an important presentation that certain colleagues won’t be present to see, it’s critical to get that information out in other ways. Speaker Deck is an application that helps you do just that. The presentation sharing tool lets people upload their slides as PDFs and share their presentations on any website by copying and pasting a few lines of code.
If you’ve already got the slides from your recent presentation saved as a PDF file, then you’re a step ahead when it comes to posting your presentation on Speaker Deck. Just create an account, verify your email address, and you can begin uploading your PDF’d presentation. Once you’ve uploaded your files, you can sit back and let the application do the rest. Speaker Deck deals with any formatting problems and plugin issues so you don’t have to. Single PDF files will automatically be separated into individual slides, and Speaker Deck will provide you with an embed code that you can copy/paste onto any website or blog. Not only can you and your colleagues share presentations by emailing each other links, but Speaker Deck actually makes it possible to email someone a link to a specific slide. This is a great feature for longer presentations, or in cases where you’re trying to make sure a colleague understands a specific point.
One of the biggest benefits that Speaker Deck provides its users is a sleek interface and clutter-free design. People who post their presentations online don’t have to worry about which ads will be shown alongside – or in some cases on top of – the slides they’ve posted. Speaker Deck presentations always look polished and professional enough to share with clients and other important people.
