last shipment was posted from an academic soil, because I have been attending conference Unicamp organized by students on marketing and social media. Curiousity to find out what is Slovak community 2.0 up to, made me travel there. I was pleased by organizers and their initiative to put this event together as they (students) wanted to learn from experts. Disappointment came from speakers (at least those, which I have seen) who simply killed any appetite for learning by…
…their slides full of text and bullet points. Duh!
Guys, respect your audience and prepare your slides professionally.
If you are going to have any speaking gig in near future, please save your audience from your ignorance and put a “make up” on your slide-deck. What “make up” am I talking about?
Or view it and download this slide-deck directly from my slideshare.net/senda5
Put in hours of effort into transformation of ppt. to “PPD” now!
- If you are already investing your time and creativity in “painting” an engaging slides, consider this shipment as a refreshment of your skill set.
- If you are potential speaker and your slide-deck is without “make – up”, consider elimination of your “weapon of bullet points destruction”, before you will do harm to innocent civilians in audience.
- If you are speaker and you have already sinned, no worries, the best time to correct it is now.
Happy shipping of your kick-ass slide-decks.
If I could give you a helping hand with slides design, you know where to find me;-)
What is your take on quality of slide-decks in your parts of the world? What is the most interesting slide-deck you have seen live or online? Where are you getting inspiration from when creating remarkable slides? Do you think it is important to put “make up” on slides at all? Do you think that there are other ways for enhancing speaking/audience experience than via slides?
What say you?
P.S.: Let me give thumbs up to speaker Michal Truban, who was the only one presenter who stood up with his speech and slides up to” make up standards”.
