powerpoint techniques

I’m at a conference this week and seeing a lot of powerpoint presentations. Coincidently, I came across some blog discussion last week about new presentation concepts, some specifically drawn from a book and blog titled “beyond bullets”

The idea is that it is deadly to write a powerpoint that is essentially a set of speakers notes. Instead, rely on the power of oration and use the visual powerpoint platform to illustrate and provide emphasis.

There’s a wonderful example here that runs about 15 minutes. You may not be as interested in the presentation topic as I am (about digital identity and authentication), but look at the presentation technique this guy uses.

I’m going to try and incorporate some of these ideas into my next presentation. Interestingly, Gina already grasps this and uses it in her middle school powerpoint class projects.
