30 Million Powerpoint presentations!!


Did you know it’s estimated that over 30 million powerpoint presentations are delivered daily around the world???

What an attention grabber!

Recently I attended a workshop by Bill Farman, a fellow Toastmaster, and this was one of the stats that he used to capture our attention. This made me sit up and listen to the information that Bill was going to share with us on powerpoint.  

Today, I’d like to share with you some of the nuggets of information that Bill talked about, to help ensure that if you are using powerpoint, you’re using it differently to the majority.

  1. We like to place a lot of facts on our powerpoint presentations because facts make us look smart
  2. Think of powerpoint as a story, have images not facts
  3. The details of your presentation should be in your handouts not on the slide
  4. Don’t use clip art – overdone on so many levels
  5. Make your own images, very easy to do with todays technology
  6. Don’t use 3D images
  7. Have lots of white space
  8. Use a remote control for powerpoint presentations
  9. Keep the lights on while you’re giving your powerpoint presentation so that people can see YOU
  10. Put you logo on the first and last slide, not on every slide

If there are 30 Million powerpoint presentations being given on a daily basis, makes you wonder how many are wasted opportunitites to get it right!

Keep speaking – Carrol
