It’s annual meeting time for many organizations and the powerpoint presentations are rolled out and droll on with endless clicks, poorly designed slides, and word upon word on a dim field. It’s a virtual flood of information that often stymies questions.
Thankfully Seth Godin has once again made his powerpoint tips available since “bullets are for the NRA” and each slide should have “no more than six words”: two lessons that are hard for us to learn.
Writing up short, informative powerpoint slides can be a challenge for any writer, especially a long-winded one such as myself. But communicating through images and a few words certainly works today . . . but so few put it into practice.
