Yes, Your PowerPoint Presentation IS Boring: Let's Fix That

PowerPoint has gotten a bad rap not because it’s a bad tool in and of itself, but because so many people misuse it. Although it was designed to enhance communication, in the wrong hands, PowerPoint has become, at best, an ineffective way to present information and, at worst, an instrument of torture. PowerPoint has become a ubiquitous tool in conference rooms around the world. However, it's a tool that is often misused, leading to boredom and frustration for audiences. A bored and frustrated audience will not receive your message, and you – the presenter – will not achieve your desired results.

However, used appropriately, slides can enhance a presentation and engage an audience. This audio presentation will discuss simple yet effective ways to help you create and deliver a compelling PowerPoint presentation. Many speakers know their slides are ineffective but don't know a better way. If you hate bad PowerPoint, don't be a perpetrator. Learn the principles of effective visuals and break the cycle!
