A great point about Powerpoint from Bert Decker on making a speech and the supporting Powerpoint.
“I’d estimate that 95% of business presentations are poorly conceived in that they are created in PowerPoints. It may be easier, but it is not more effective. If you realize that your information and your PPs are NOT your presentation, but YOU and your KEY POINTS are, then you will create your presentation first, and use PPs to amplify your Point Of View. Decide what you want to say, then add the support – and your PPs will be used effectively, with graphs, pictures, video clips and other SHARPs to bring memorability and power to your Point Of View.”
