Don't use your words. In a presentation, say only what you need to.

Pitching is like jazz. Like the notes you don't play, it's the words you don't say that make the difference. But it's not just about leaving room for discussion.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
