World Workplace Presentation - Avoiding Death by Powerpoint - How to Give Better Presentation


2017 World Workplace Presenter, IFMA East Bay's Past President

Description:  At one time or another, we have all endured the grueling punishment of "Death by PowerPoint."  Whether it is the "Presentation to Nowhere" or the all-too-common "Read Every Bullet on Every Slide to the Audience" presentation, or the "I Can't Believe They Called a Meeting for THIS" presentation, we have either been personally subjected to this torture or worse yet, inflicted it on others.  The truth is that many of the PowerPoint presentations we have sat through should never have been given in the first place.  Sometimes, the best slide deck is the one that never happened.

So what are we to do?  How can we communicate to our audience effectively and without putting them to sleep with "content rich" slides?  It begins with identifying which of the core types of presentations your information would best be suited and which medium of communication will be most effective.
