A tongue-in-cheek presentation with 3 tips to avoid being a PowerPoint criminal.

These are slides from a humorous/informative speech I wrote for a recent Toastmasters meeting. I've modified the presentation since then so that it can stand on its own.

    • DON’T BE APOWERPOINT
      FELON
      3 PRESENTATION CRIMES
      AND HOW TO AVOID THEM
    • WE’VE ALL EXPERIENCED
      DEATH BYPOWERPOINT
    • CAUSING DEATH IS
      MURDER
    • MURDER IS A
      FELONY
    • SO…
    • DEATH BY
      POWERPOINT IS A
      FELONY
    • HERE ARE
    • HERE ARE
      3
    • HERE ARE
      3
      POWERPOINT FELONIES TO AVOID
    • HERE ARE
      3
      POWERPOINT FELONIES TO AVOID
      (AT ALL COST!)
    • YOU’VE SEEN
      THIS BEFORE:
    • HOW TO BE AWESOME
      BE FRIENDLY
      WORK HARD
      SAY THANK YOU
    • OUTLINE

      SLIDES
    • HOW TO BE AWESOME
      POWERPOINT
      FELONY
      BE FRIENDLY
      WORK HARD
      SAY THANK YOU
    • INSTEAD, TRY THIS:
    • 1
      ONE IDEA
      PER SLIDE
    • THE REASON
      FOR THIS IS,
    • PEOPLE GET
      DISTRACTED
    • YOUR AUDIENCE WILL READ
      POINTS 2 AND 3 WHILE YOU’RE STILL DISCUSSING POINT 1.
    • OR,
      YOUR AUDIENCE WILL RE-READ
      POINTS 1AND 2WHILE YOU’RE DISCUSSING POINT 3.
    • BULLET POINTS
      • ARE
      • FOR
      • LISTS
      • ONLY
    • USE BULLETS ONLY WHEN YOU’RE ACTUALLY LISTING SOMETHING.
    • TYPES OF BIRDS
      • EAGLE
      • SPARROW
      • ROBIN
      • BLUEJAY
      • PENGUIN
    • BUT THE NEXT TIME YOU’RE TEMPTED TO DO THIS…
    • HOW TO BE AWESOME
      BE FRIENDLY
      WORK HARD
      SAY THANK YOU
    • …DO THIS…
    • HOW TO BE AWESOME
      1. BE FRIENDLY
      2. WORK HARD
      3. SAY THANK YOU
    • …INSTEAD.
    • KEEP EVERYONE ON THE SAME PAGE.
    • JUST REMEMBER,
    • 1
      ONE IDEA
      PER SLIDE
    • ANOTHER THING I’M SURE YOU’VE SEEN,
      • FIRST, MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE KIND AND PERSONABLE TO EVERYONE YOU MEET EACH DAY.
    • THE PRESENTER PUTS EVERYTHING THEY WANT TO SAY ON THEIR SLIDES,
    • AND THEN READS THEM TO YOU.
    • ONE OF THEM
      (THE SLIDES OR THE PRESENTER)
      IS UNNECCESSARY.
      • FIRST, MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE KIND AND PERSONABLE TO EVERYONE YOU MEET EACH DAY.
      POWERPOINT
      FELONY
    • INSTEAD, TRY THIS:
    • 2
      ELIMINATE
      TEXT
    • PEOPLE CAN
      ONLY PROCESS
      ONE STREAM
      OF VERBAL INPUT
      AT A TIME.
    • THEY’LL EITHER…
    • LISTEN TO YOU,
    • OR READ YOUR SLIDES.
    • ?
      ?
      THEY CAN’T DO BOTH.
    • ELIMINATE AS MUCH TEXT AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN
    • ELIMINATE AS MUCH TEXT AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN
    • ELIMINATE AS MUCH TEXT AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN
    • ELIMINATE AS MUCH TEXT AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN
      • FIRST, MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE KIND AND PERSONABLE TO EVERYONE YOU MEET EACH DAY.
    • BECOMES
    • Be Friendly
    • JUST REMEMBER,
    • 2
      ELIMINATE
      TEXT
    • AND FINALLY,
    • USING A SLIDE TEMPLATE TO INSERT AN IMAGE GIVES YOU SOMETHING LIKE THIS:
    • BE FRIENDLY
    • POWERPOINT
      FELONY
      BE FRIENDLY
    • INSTEAD, TRY THIS:
    • 3
      USE BIG
      IMAGES
    • WITH EXACTLY THE SAME CONTENT,
    • BE FRIENDLY
    • BECOMES
    • BE FRIENDLY
    • BE FRIENDLY
      (MUCH BETTER)
    • BUT BE CAREFUL TO AVOID THIS:
    • BE FRIENDLY
    • BE FRIENDLY
      PIXELATION
    • IT’S CAUSED BY STRETCHING SMALL IMAGES.
    • MAKE SURE TO USE IMAGES THAT ARE AT LEAST
    • 800 x 600
      PIXELS
    • YOU CAN FIND GREAT IMAGERY TO USE AT SITES LIKE:
    • compfight.com
      (CREATIVE COMMONS)
      istockphoto.com

    • ONE MORE THING:
    • CLIP ART
