The good news is that there are a few simple rules that will help you find the balance between making your presentations dynamic and making them easy on your audience’s eyes.

The Future Belongs to the Open


Budapest. The heart of Europe. Home of the Rubik's Cube, water polo champs, and goulash. An unlikely center for change, but more things are happening here than often told.

For a start, there's a thriving startup scene where products like LogmeinUstreamNNG and of course Prezi are being built by the children of the revolution. No, there aren't warehouses of kids in flat caps writing code.
