Don’t be cheetah… slooow dooown and take time to create your presentation.Cheetahs may be fast (and powerful,) but have you ever seen one give an effective presentation? My guess is no. Creating a presentation isn’t a race! You need time to organize your thoughts, plan your message, and select your visuals. Which brings me to my next point…Don’t be another cheetah… pay for your images.Cheetahs never win. At least not when it comes to swiping images from the web. Take the time to search for images, and spend a little money on them. There are great stock photography sites, where you can find photos for just a few bucks. And if that’s too much, check out flickr’s Creative Commons–the photos are beautiful and FREE*. Photography will (almost) always make your presentation more interesting, but the right photography will make it more impactful.
