A jazzier alternate to PowerPoint

You’ve seen enough presentations to know that PowerPoint interferes with the speaker’s credibility more often than it helps. PowerPoint has its place, but few people know what that is and how to use it to good advantage.

What’s on the screen works better if it’s actually visual. Here’s another approach you might want to consider: Prezi. It has an interactive feel and tends to encourage more visual visuals.

If you’re not familiar with Prezi, you can go to this link to see examples of how others have used it. https://prezi.com/explore/staff-picks/

And, if you want a free 1-hour online training you can sign up here: https://prezi.com/support/training/ . They’re doing a training today, July 3 and on July 17.

You can join Prezi free to try it out. I did and had fun designing a presentation on this large space that allows you to move around the screen, zoom in and out, and use more creativity. It’s a lot like the moving around the screen on your smart phone.

It’s worth a look to get some ideas on how to jazz up your visuals.
