PowerPoint Presentation Poisoning


Let's face it: 

Most employees "learn" presentation design by mimicking their boss's mistakes.  If your people haven't been properly trained to design workable on-screen visuals, they'll create presentations to look like what they've seen from above. Can you blame them?

  • Problem: We see thousands of slides each year, from hundreds of companies, across dozens of industries, and they all share one thing in common - TMI. Too much information on every slide makes a boring and painful experience for your audience. But worse, TMI results in extremely low KT, or knowledge transfer - what most presentation designs are supposed to be about. 
  • Reality: There are extreme limits to the amount of information that even Stephen Hawking can absorb in any given unit of time; you can bet your presenters are exceeding those limits every day. And TMI doesn't just apply to the amount of information on a slide: most presentation designs include the wrong kind of information, in the wrong format, arranged in the wrong order, and then delivered in a way that almost guarantees that no two people in the audience are on the same wavelength. 

  • Solution: Even the most skilled presenters get tripped up by improperly designed visuals.  Having delivery skills is really only half the story.  Even if your personnel have attended a presentation skills course, if they're trying to apply those skills to their old set of slides, they're probably still uncomfortable and ineffective in front of a group.  Presentation slides, like all things visual, must abide by a strict set of rules in order to add to, and not detract from, the delivery of information.

In both our Optimizing Your Presentation Skills and Advanced Presentation Design courses, we begin with the concept that presentation design and delivery are inextricable.   So participants submit their presentations to us well ahead of class day.  We select the best examples of what doesn't work and submit them to our Extreme Makeover process. We analyze all the essential components for each slide: Background, fonts, number of concepts per slide, balance of graphics, animations selected, continuity with other slides, relative importance of the data, and logic of the order, to name a few.

Our Extreme Makeover program thus provides effective knowledge transfer to participants using their own real-world material - not just fancy theory.  At the end of the day, participants not only go forth with a thorough understanding of proper presentation design, but with templates that serve as the basis for their future, successful presentations.

Don't sentence one more of your customers to Death-by-PowerPoint! Let us show you how dozens of Fortune500 firms, as well as hundreds of other smaller companies, have totally changed the way they create presentations.  See how you, too, can profit by rediscovering how to clearly communicate with colleagues and clients.  


SPECIAL OFFER:If your firm is local to the greater Philadelphia or Los Angeles areas, you may qualify for a free, 90-minute on-site seminar on presentation design and delivery, including a no-charge Extreme Makeover of one of your current PowerPoint presentations.  Find out how -
