We’ve spoken about the use of PowerPoint and slides before. So this article is supposed to act as a reminder to use large images and to not fill your slides with lots of text. Read Alan Matthew’s informative ten top tips for using slides.
Geoffrey James tells us to remove or replace three slides he calls ‘boring’ to make our presentations more interesting and relevant. So which ones are they?
Instead of beginning with the history of your company (ah, I’ve seen this one many times before), talk about your business experience.

Make these changes should make your presentation more meaningful for your audience. 🙂
