Since a good organizational structure ensures that the right people are in the right places, it allows for the company to be more efficient and put its best foot forward.

According to Forbes.com, the six ways to avoid “Death By PowerPoint” are:
- Mix up your media
- Send content ahead of time

I also learned that handouts are important because people love knowing they don’t have to take full notes and can simple listen.
