One of the most obvious reasons I like and use Slideshare is to upload and access my public and private presentations and speaker notes. As a mobile professional and industry speaker/presenter, I find the site and tools invaluable.
What’s In It For Me?
Slideshare will host a variety of slide shows and decks from PowerPoint, Keynote, PDF’s, and more. The ability to access them from the cloud on a mobile device and from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection, makes having an account on the site totally worth it.
Features like sharing, embedding, cool widgets, and analytics make Slideshare even more desirable.
Don’t Recreate the Wheel
The social networking opportunity makes it even more valuable as I can access those individuals which I follow, respect, trust, and admire. They too are uploading and sharing their presentations and files as well. Imagine a library of slideshows and presentations that you could chose from for your next meeting or presentation.
