Share your worst - I've had a lot shitty PPT work this week, and want to commiserate.
My worst in banking:
MD thought it would be value-added to show a slide summarizinganalyst takeaways on the recently announced M&A deal -- company in question was fairly big public co, so lots of research coverage.
We had to fill a slide with little boxes, each box containing the top quote from the research analyst (you can bet we turned those MANY TIMES) and a little arrow up or down with a % showing the change in the analyst's expected price target to now (basically their response to deal). 25+ little boxes.
At the end of the day, MD decided it didn't fit with the messaging and was removed from the appendix... womp womp.
