Love the answer? Share it!TwitterLinkedinFacebook0Presenting to an audience is different than presenting to a client. Understand the difference in purpose of the presentation.

Presenting to an audience is perhaps to make an altogether different point. Be clear about the purpose of the presentation, it will help you slant your talk accompanying the presentation, […]

Love the answer? Share it!TwitterLinkedinFacebook0Doubt means a discussion within your head.

Love the answer? Share it!TwitterLinkedinFacebook0this has two questions with subtle difference and i think they both need answers in our profession as well as in life.

Love the answer? Share it!TwitterLinkedinFacebook0A: That’s a very good question. How do we know what we are capable of? how do we know how much we can do in a day?

Love the answer? Share it!TwitterLinkedinFacebook0A: It is to understand who is a creative director, what is his role to understand what activities are expected of him in or out of office.
