Avoid Death by PowerPoint
September 25, 2012
At some point in your professional career you’ll almost definitely have to give a PowerPoint presentation. Remember how awful the last presentation was that you had to sit through? It doesn’t have to be like that.
PowerPoint is designed as a support tool, not the only tool of your presentation, and should be used in a way that strengthens your storytelling, message and delivery—not the point of all the information in your presentation.
Dave Yewman of DASH Consulting will show attendees how to use PowerPoint the right way, without putting your audience to sleep. The presentation will feature examples of PowerPoint pitfalls to avoid and helpful tips and tricks to crafting excellent presentations.
- Craft your presentation with the words first (the story), then put it in PowerPoint
- Basic tips & tricks to get the most out of PowerPoint
- How to tell good stories in your presentation
