Tired of boring business presentations? You’re in good company! Many people don’t know what’s required to create a truly effective electronic slide show, and are equally turned off by viewing the ones that other people produce.
What are some of the most common complaints you hear about the presentations you typically attend, whether for business, technical, scientific, social, philanthropic, or academic purposes? How about…
- “They’re usually too bullet-heavy.”
- “The text is often difficult to decipher.”
- “People tend to read from their slides.”
- “There’s too much information presented.”
- “The material is dull and unimaginative!”
Our dilemma is that we have an epidemic — a pandemic, if you will — of meeting attendees who have become tired of being glazed over by this antiquated style of presentation.
This article explains seven major mistakes and a set of corresponding remedies that can apply to any presentation you create with slide software, whether it’s Microsoft® PowerPoint®, Apple® Keynote, or the *free* Google® Presentations software.
