Ahhh, the almighty PowerPoint...it seems to be a requirement these days when making a presentation, but are we using it effectively? Here are a few tips to help make your presentation polished and compelling when using PowerPoint.
Great tips, Blake! Some new, some dusted off refreshers. I'll review again beore my next presentation!
WOW! Fantastic info! I plan to share it with all of my team. Scripting and rehearsing--2 things that rarely happen!
Concise delivery of sound information. Thanks!
Blake - this is great arsenal for some of my team who think it's crazy to "script" a presentation first, if at all. Appreciate it!
Dear Blake, thank you for providing us with a down to earth approach to Power Point. I believe some presenters are actually addicted to PP presentations; almost like a security blanket. I have been in sessions were the presenters ask a question to the public and at the same time they are showing the answer in the featured slide. If the presenter is so attached to a PP is not even worth spending the time with the presenter; the only thing I can think of is if I can get a hold of the presentation rather than have someone read it to me. A PP is a great tool but if abused, it takes center stage diminishing the importance and impact of having the opportunity to interact with an expert.
Thank you so much, again for encouraging presenters to embrace their talents and leave behind the brain drain of a PP.
Great information Blake! I'll use these tips with my presentations to the Junior League!
Great tips, Blake! I am sending the link to my leadership class to give us some pointers for our upcoming presentaion!
Thanks for the training Blake. I'm going to send this out to the team.
Great reminders Blake. PPT is only a tool that helps humans present information more efficiently and effectively. But great slides can never take the place of good ol' prep and practice. Thank you so much.
I appreciate your emphasis on the power point production not being a tool for the presenter to read to the audience - but as a visual enhancement of the material that is being shared . Printed information that is taken away from the presentation is a reminder with brief bullet points of what is said, but also a template that the prospective presenter can adapt for own needs.
Thank you, Blake! Mitchell Communications Group is amazing!
