Slide Presentation Rules, by Nancy Duarte

Gee Ranasinha Communications, Presentations

Duarte Design has just posted a fantastic YouTube video outlining five ways to improve your slide presentations. Using just MS PowerPoint 2010 (and nothing else) this presentation gives you some great ground rules for the next time you have to make a presentation.

Sure, it shows off the new builds and transitions in PowerPoint 2010, which is probably why Microsoft asked Duarte to put something together in the first place. But for me what it really shows is that you can add such eye-candy without detriment to clearly conveying your message – if you know what you’re doing.

I’ve mentioned Nancy on this blog before. Nancy’s company is one of the reasons why I started KEXINO. Duarte Design is probably more responsible than anyone else in making us all aware that slide presentations – for the presenter as well as for the audience – don’t have to be “death by bullet-point.”
