To Power Point or Not to Power Point

When I give a presentation using Power Point I either feel great about it or feel terrible. The times when I feel great about it all can be traced to a minimal use of PP as an aid. The times when I feel terrible about it can be traced to relying too much on PP as an aid.

My best presentations have a spontaneous feel to it. Though I’ve prepared and done my homework, I dive into sharing my ideas with enthusiasm. Power Point takes the wind out of my sails when I rely on it too much.

An image, a video, a quote, main ideas. Keep it simple.
