Bad Powerpoint Points from Doug Belshaw

Thanks to Doug Belshaw for his great post on bad Powerpoint. This echoes what I have read recently in Presentation Zen,and my own observations of trainers at events alongside my own reflections on my talks. which can be summed up with:

  • Simplicity is the key
  • A Picture says so much more than a page full of text or bullet points agogo
  • Don't pack your slides full of everything you want to say - put this in the hand out or speak it out
  • Standing and reading your slides, shows that you may be unprepared and also stops people focusing on you

And buy and Read Presentation Zen.
