(pronounced PYESS duh ray zees TAHNS)

This French term is fun throw in once in a while, especially if you want to get someone’s attention. It a dramatic way to refer to and spotlight the most important item in a collection, program, series or grouping: the main attraction.

Example: Scott was a master when giving presentations to clients because he would always skillfully build up their interest and then wow them at the end with what he knew was their design project’s pièce de résistance.
