Powerpoint doesn’t have to be like this!

I came across this presentation from an Analyst at Morgan Stanley and it epitomises everything that is wrong with the way most people use PowerPoint.   Honestly!   it doesn’t have to be like this.  Don’t deluge your audience with data.   These slides are so busy that after a couple you just want to give up.

I’m sure this lady means well and knows her stuff, but believe me, presenting it in this way won’t hack it!  Do yourself a favour and learn how to ditch the bullet points and simplify your slides.  Your audience will thank you for it.

For some practical tips on how do do this check out my short video presentation on how to make powerpoint work

  1. Hello Gavin, I share your opinion about this presentation. Though I would like to know how you explain that this slideshow is a real hit on slideshare? (17428 views as of now)

  2. Oh, it’s horrible Gavin, but I can’t look away!

    @Christophe, I’m guessing that it has so many hits on SlideShare because people like Gavin are referencing it as a really bad example of PowerPoint. People love a train wreck, don’t they?
