  • I liked this a lot. It is both simple and effective. I disagree with those that say bullet points dont work. As this powerpoint clearly demonstrates, bullet points are there to highlight and remind you of what you want to say. The audience listens to you instead of spending the whole time reading your slides - in effect missing your actual words.

  • I stopped watching at slide two. The ONE thing we know for absolute sure about Powerpoint presentations is that traditional bulletpoint orientated slides DO NOT WORK. Experts have known this for a long, long time and proving it to people is how I early my daily bread.

    Actually I guess I should be grateful that people don't know that - otherwise I'd be out of a job! :)
