    Default Powerpoint presentation - is it a "Deck" or "Pack"

    Does your blue sky thinking come in a slide "deck" or "pack"?

    I keep hearing both and I'm getting terribly confused as to which one I should use...

    Can anyone point me to the "single version of the truth" on this one please?

    Thanks.
    Whatever...

    Deck seems to be standard in the US.

    What does deck mean? deck Definition. Meaning of deck. OnlineSlangDictionary.com

    See MF helped with the definition at the end.

    Pack sounds like cards.

    it's a deck here...

    we had a 132 slide deck once...

    what a pointless waste of time - after slide 10 no one was listening

    obviously everyone just got bored and sign it off

    project went to rat sh*t

    main sponsor got confused upset and angry

    had to gently point out that although following a project methoology is a very fine ambition a bit of fookin common sense does not go amiss at times.

    Good question.

    Important to ensure we're all singing from the same hymsheet.

    Now, let's go and grab some of that low hanging fruit!
