It has been two weeks of training corporates to create and deliver better PowerPoint presentations — and yes, these have been two very satisfying weeks. It’s always magical to see people understand that the key to creating better slides is not dependent upon what they are trying to tell — rather, it is what the audience will benefit from.
To most presenters, a presentation is more than the slides — and the problem is that the “more” here does not extend to presenters and audiences. Here, the “more” is a hot potato — they want to get done with their slides, and they want to get done with their presentations. At the end of their presentations, they don’t look for success but they look for relief because they are done with it!
