"Good PowerPoint Presentation" Doesn't Have To Be An Oxymoron

If you give presentations using PowerPoint, you need to read Robert Frost’s 10 Smart Ways To Make Any PowerPoint Presentation Way More Interesting. For most of us, the convenience of Microsoft’s presentation software is a trap that keeps us from focusing on the words we say because we're too worried about the words we project. Your slide deck is a tool, not the main event, says Frost:
“PowerPoint slides support the speaker – they are not supposed to stand alone. When we get in the habit of handing out copies of our presentation, we get in the habit of designing our presentations to be handouts.”
Read Frost’s ten tips. Start making PowerPoint work for you, instead of the other way around.
