Don’t miss out on seeing the actual presentation – link within the article
It’s a confirmed fact that many presentations around digital media are sub par.
I’ve been taking a good hard look at my own ones of late, and think that I could probably evolve my own presentations into a more contemporary format.
You see, presentations should be looked at as storytelling. ie – it doesn’t matter if you’re making it up … that’s all part of the story
The main trends I see in many presentations now are …
– they don’t say much
– there’s a big picture on every page
– no logical flow
– most include sentiment around ‘change’
– big dramatic statements
Often I am told my presentations are too light on the images – so I’m changing the game.

For me it ticks all boxes
– picture of Obama

– lots of Web 2.0 product logos that no one uses
– some ‘rules’ I pulled out of my arse
– TV bash
– 2006 Time Magazine cover
Conference organisers. My phone is always on.
