Most PowerPoint slides are ineffective, and quite often they aren’t very impressive either.
If your PowerPoint slides are full of text that your audience can read for themselves, they don’t work. The audience reads and ignores the presenter. If your slides contain only one giant ‘Zen’ image, but don’t help the audience understand your complex ideas, they don’t work.
Impressive PowerPoint slides look good. That can be important, but it isn’t enough. Slides that work - that is, PowerPoint slides that help you get your message across - should be visual.
Use charts, diagrams, pictures and animation to create effective PowerPoint slides. Here, we give you some free visual PowerPoint slides to customise and use in your own presentations.
Please contact m62 if you have some existing slides that you would like to see turned into a visual presentation. Why use bullet points?

The open62 training course as well was excellent. It was good to see the science behind presenting explained – it actually made a lot of sense. Presenters don’t really give thought to these things on a daily basis, but they can have a huge impact. The course highlighted this, and I definitely have a better understanding of presenting now.
