Three Situations When You Shouldn’t Use PowerPoint™
The Onion cracks me up. It’s sage and humorous tongue-firmly-planted-in-cheek rantings often have me choking on my morning toast.
Not a fan of PowerPoint™ slidedecks? Here’s some Onion style ammunition to convince your friends and colleagues.
Seriously though, slidedecks have a time and a place. Sometimes its best to not use them at all.
Don’t use a slidedeck if you:
- Haven’t practiced your presentation and are winging it (not advised). Technology will usually fail you. You will look like an amateur.
- Are giving a motivational presentation and can easily speak from the heart. Your audience will all ready know the information. You are there to inspire them.
- Do you want to appear as a remarkable leader? Most presenter’s use a slidedeck. What if you didn’t?
The next time you give a presentation consider whether you really need to create a slidedeck. Will your audience miss it? No, likely not.
The advantage that you have with not using a slidedeck is that all attention and eyes will be focussed on you.
Have you given presentations without a slidedeck? What was the reaction to your bold move?
