presentation skills: resources

If you want to improve your presentation skills, these resources are a great first step to improving - of course the best way to improve is to just do it again and again, on a continuous basis, as there are no short cuts to becoming great at something. My thanks to Lukas Widmer (@LuckySurgLuke), an excellent communicator, for finding these links and providing the text below to go with them.
