  • This is how the title page of a typical PowerPoint starts out. <br />

  • Get rid of the training wheels. Don’t use templates. <br />

  • Would you want to be listening to your presentation? <br />
  • <br />
  • I once sat through a presentation by a senior school board official who FOR ONE HOUR stood and READ the presentation slides to an audience of 900 people. <br /> <br /> Your audience is not 4 years old. Don’t insult them by reading your slides. <br /> The brain processes graphic information 15,000 times faster than the listening. Most people do not read and listen at the same time effectively. <br />

  • Racism is most often seen as an individual, psychological phenomenon. For example, one often hears the statement \"racism is just human nature.\" Buried in that statement is the implication that since there isn't much we can do about human nature, there isn't much we can do about racism either. According to this point of view, racism is constant, unchanging, like the weather, the moon or the seasons. Understanding history is a good antidote to that kind of pessimism. If we can show that racism has a beginning, then the \"human nature\" argument obviously doesn't hold much water. And if racism has a beginning, then we can argue that it can have an end.\" <br />
  • Is this a powerful slide? <br />
  • How about this? Or using a picture while you talk? <br />
  • If you are using a slide that looks like this are you <br /> Reading it? <br /> Waiting until your audience reads it? How long do you wait? Some read faster than others. <br />

  • Born 1654 in Stratford England <br /> Third child of John and Mary Shakespeare <br /> No record of attending university <br /> Married Anne at 18. She was 26. <br /> Believed to have left his family and lived in London for twenty years. <br />
