Exceed 10 Slides Databank Forewords How to use this presentation? What is this presentation? This document is not a presentation per se. Instead, it is a collection of slides, all of which are related to Exceed 10 product family. So how do I use it? The marketing department has created a master presentation template that can be used regardless of the product presented. When preparing a Exceed presentation for a customer, pick up the master presentation template. Depending on your audience, topic and business case, complete the master presentation with slides taken from this databank. Does that mean I’m supposed to make my own presentations? Look, you are the expert when it comes to knowing your customers and understanding what they want. This is why we are providing you with all the pieces to assemble your own presentation. Think about it as dressing your sandwich. How do I use this presentation? (continued) OK, but how will I know which slide to pick? This databank contains a huge number of slides all related to Exceed. For ease-of- use, the slides have been grouped into sections. Before picking up any slide, make sure you are able to answer questions such as “What is the point of this presentation?”, “What am I trying to demonstrate?” or “What’s my customer business problem?”. Keep in mind that putting out a lot of content into a presentation is not the best way to communicate your message to your audience. Be selective in your choices and stay focused on the goal of the presentation. Don’t put context before content. What if I can’t find the slide I’m looking for? If you can’t find the appropriate slide, talk to Product Marketing or Product Management. Exceed Overview What is Exceed?
