Make it look good, even in interim drafts. People will often overlook or miss nits if something looks good - just gives you some more leeway to catch your own errors

I’ve used Figma as a sort of graphic design for dummies. It’s an easy way for me as someone without official skills/training to edit content within visual frameworks.

Ensure that you have multiple checks & balances in place to make sure your data is correct. This would include checks & balances with IT/business intelligence to ensure any and all data coming out of the data warehouse is 100% accurate.

It is bad enough presenting inaccurate data to your audience (especially if you are ignorant towards the inaccuracy), as your audience could very well make decisions that would potentially affect the bottom line.

With that said, there is nothing worse than a department head or other leaders catching a mistake in the middle of a financial review or presentation. When something like that happens, your veracity of your analysis will come into question, in-turn prompting more questions. (If this value is incorrect, then what about this over here? What about the rest of this data? Where did you get this data from?)

TLDR: Put in checks and balances to make sure your data is correct.

Spell check, save often and expect revisions no matter how good it looks.

With that said, save every version. Can’t tell you how many times I ended up pulling slides from v2 or v3 after 15 other versions.

And to others point about checking everything, cannot agree more. If I find one mistake on your deck, I’m not even finishing going through it; take it back, pls fix and god help you if I find another after that.

Have a few questions for moms who got an amino: 1. How long did it take to get results back? 2. Were you happy with the level of detail from the diagnostic results? 3. How awful was the procedure? 4. Overall, was it worth it?

Really like the idea of the information you get in the procedure but worried about an excruciatingly long wait.
