powerpoint-presentation-28968585A lot of stuff have already been written about how to eradicate death by PowerPoint but people still seem to keep following what everybody else is doing. Only a few ones have enough foresight to ask if there is a much better way of doing a PowerPoint presentation.

On this post, I’d like to remind you these 3 simple yet very useful tips you ought to follow if you are about to present in front of a live audience and is thinking of using PowerPoint as a tool.

Tip 1: Don’t start in PowerPoint. Your PowerPoint slides ought to be used as a tool to help you clarify your points during your presentation. It shouldn’t be the main event.

Tip 2: Don’t use bullet points. They’re boring and they don’t help with memory recall at all. Instead, focus on telling a good story.

Tip 3: Don’t put multiple ideas on one slide. There should only be one idea per slide. People will remember better that way.
