Fun slides

PowerPoint gets a bad rap. (Or Keynote if you’re a Mac user). But I just see it as a blank canvas that you can put ANY visuals into – whether photographs, or hand drawn images, or beautiful data visualisations. 

In this talk, the speaker does a great job of making the slides additive to the talk. They contribute to the storytelling, the clarity, and the humour.

(This is always way more interesting than having the slides duplicate what you are saying in bullet point form, unless there are very good reasons why this needs to happen.)

Next time you give a presentation, I’d encourage you to consider:

What role are my slides playing here?

What might be more engaging for my audience?  

They really can add a whole new dimension to your talk.
