Give a Presentation (Without the Technical Hitches)

In this article you will learn how to transfer files between devices

If you’re one of those who likes to speak (or rather, other people like to hear you speak), then you’ve probably dealt with “presentation hell.”

Presentation hell is when you’re scheduled to give a big presentation—either to your team, your boss, or a giant conference of 10,000 of your esteemed colleagues—and technology is just not working.

You saved the file on your Mac at home, but all they have here are PCs and it’s not opening the file correctly. But you brought your MacBook! Except they don’t have a dongle to connect it to the projector. You’ve probably been there.

This kind of thing happens all the time. It’s the leading cause of night terrors among 99 percent of IT staff. (This has not been fact checked.)

But here’s the thing: Droplr will give you the power to pass files between machines with no hassles or worries.

Transferring files with a Drop

With Droplr, you can save entire files as a Drop and then grab them from your account by just clicking the link.

So instead of fighting through compatibility issues and trying to make the presentation just work already, you can click a link, open the file, and be ready to go.

Your audience will love it too, because they won’t have to sit uncomfortably in silence while you fumble through all your personal documents on a projector screen.

This is how it works:

  1. Save your presentation as a PDF.
  2. Download the Droplr desktop app for Windows, Linux, or Mac.
  3. Right-click on the file and click “Share with Droplr.”
  4. Open the link on the computer where you need it.

You just transferred a file in about four seconds. And you didn’t even need a dongle, flash drive, or magic wand.

Now, carry on.

You’ve got people waiting to hear what you have to say.
