Meet the Author

Geetesh Bajaj is based in Hyderabad, India, and he got started with his first PowerPoint presentation around a decade ago. He has been working with PowerPoint ever since.
Geetesh believes that any presentation is a sum of its elements. Everything in a presentation can be broken down to this element level, and PowerPoint’s real power lies in its ability to act as glue for all such elements.
Geetesh contributes regularly to journals and Web sites, including Presentations magazine and the Microsoft.com Web site. He’s also a Microsoft PowerPoint MVP (Most Valuable Professional) and a regular on Microsoft’s PowerPoint newsgroups. It is from this newsgroup that many of the ideas and thoughts in this book were assimilated.
Geetesh’s own Web site at indezine.com has hundreds of pages on PowerPoint usage. It also has a blog, an e-zine, product reviews, free templates and interviews.
Geetesh welcomes comments and suggestions about his books. He can be reached at geetesh@geetesh.com.
