“Death by Powerpoint” admonitions seem as common as warnings against high cholesterol. Yet, when you dig deeper, it becomes clear that Powerpoint is not the culprit (nor Keynote, Prezi, etc.) Instead, the death knell comes from slides that overuse bullet points and underutilize images. So what’s a presenter to do?
I’ve been playing around with a variety of alternatives to bullet points that incorporate images and yet still allow me to include text. While the initial development of the slides is more time consuming than creating a bulleted list, they are more visually pleasing. I also expect to be able to use them as a template for a variety of presentations, so the time was well spent.
Here are a few examples. If you have others, please share!
