PowerPoint, like any other tool, can be used well in order to achieve excellent results. Too often, through a lack of knowledge about how audiences react to visual elements, presenters achieve sub-optimal results because of their PowerPoint slides. We call this “Death by PowerPoint.”
Fortunately, we can solve a great number of presentation visualization problems in a ½ day workshop.
– what and how an audience sees
– how to use text on slides
– what kinds of pictures work
– what we can learn from children’s books and street signs
– how to use animations and video
– how to use objects, drawings, and other non-electronic media
– how to present data, charts and graphs
The participants will, in the last hour of the workshop, begin to apply the principles learned to their own slides. Then we will critique each other.
In this way, we will improve results and start to breathe life back into PowerPoint.
Interesting and engaging lectures
