A PowerPoint presentation becomes infinitely more interesting if there is a story threaded into the narrative. Presenters often lose the audience’s attention when the content is too technical or text heavy. So try and insert more visuals in your business PPTs.
24point0’s Business Life Analogies deck is a great resource of entertaining, editable slides that reflect everyday situations that can be applied to any number of scenarios.
For example, if you want to do a wide ranging presentation on the benefits and perils of a job in the current economic situation, take the following slide where two Point People sit gazing at a crystal ball:
The next slide can show that hope does spring eternal – even among Point People.
Apply animation or transition effects to the slide above so that it segues into the slide below, making the presentation more dynamic:
Of course hope has to be accompanied by hard work to realize one’s goals, something our Point Person knows very well:
Well, was it worth it for our skinny friend? We are feeling magnanimous, so it does seem he achieves success:
Success that his partner celebrates in iconic style:
So get away from the jargon-filled, textually saturated PowerPoint slides that are the bane of audiences. Inject some levity and creative thinking into your business presentations and elevate them, making your PPT memorable and easy to understand for viewers.
