This report and SlideShare deck present the results of the survey and what financial presenters can do to make their presentations more effective.

When you use numbers in your presentation that were calculated in Excel, does the audience always know what the positive and negative numbers really mean? An increase in expenses is not usually a good result. Use universal indicators to make the meaning of the numbers clear.
