Ellen Finkelstein’s Smart Talk Podcast with Lisa B. Marshall About PowerPoint and Presentations

ad-training-square-240x240Ellen Finkelstein recently had an interesting conversation with Lisa B. Marshall where she talked about PowerPoint and presentations. In particular, they talked about presentation designs, trends and questions people would usually ask her like:

– how to not put everything on a slide
– where to get good, free images
– how to not read your slides
– techniques on how to engage the audience especially during webinars
– how to use feedback to move your presentations forward
– the difference between live presentations and online presentations

Lisa B. Marshall also mentioned one of Ellen’s e-books called The Lost Art of Persuasion. Here, she further probed into the 3 mistakes most presenters make when trying to persuade an audience.

During the course of the conversation, a compare and contrast was also made between the use of Tell n’ Show instead of Show n’ Tell and what that means. Furthermore, a distinction was made between the use of photos and ClipArt.

Before the talk ended, a very important question was asked by Lisa: When is it good not to be using PowerPoint to which Ellen gave a very insightful answer.

If you’re a speaker or a presenter, I encourage you to listen to Ellen’s Smart Talk podcast. Here’s the link: http://t.co/OzDRFvbtYp
