If you’re looking to spice up your next online meeting, have we got some fun presentation ideas for you! In the new eBook, The Little Black Book of Presentation Ideas, the meetings experts at PGi serve up 21 fun presentation ideas that will “kick the dull out of your presentations.” The ideas are so good that CNN Money featured the eBook in a recent article.
Here’s a sneak peek of my three favorite ideas:
Tip #4: Beware Slide Overload
KISS is the key to inflicting “Death by PowerPoint” on your audience: Keep it simple, stupid! The eBook suggestions that the best presentations are light on slides and big on ideas.
Tip #10: Apps, Apps, Apps
Looks like slide decks aren’t the life of the party anymore. The eBook features six great apps for making presentations interactive, such as using the amazing Prezi tool to “make your presentations zoom” and Easel.ly to generate infographic-style graphics for great data depictions. Did I mention that the apps are free?
Tip #16: 10 Minutes, 1 Idea
This fun presentation idea blew my mind. The average adult attention span is a mere five minutes, meaning that up to 92% of your “slide-after-slide-after-slide presentation is over, out, finished, people!” The eBook dares us to schedule a 10-minute meeting focused on just one task. Makes this writer feel like rebelling against the canned 30-minute timeslot!
This is a MUST-READ eBook for every single business professional suffering from presentation ennui. The ideas I shared are just the tip of the iceberg. Better presentations, fantastic public speaking and killer online meetings are literally just a download away. Now, I’m off to my 10-minute meeting. Good luck!
