The Art of the Presentation
Being a collection of links and information not about PowerPoint itself but about the REAL Point that PowerPoint serves: Communication.
PowerPoint MVP Shawn Toh (tohlz) writes:
"I have recently reviewed a training package by Train Signal which to my surprise, covers a decent amount of useful presentation tips and avoiding Death By PowerPoint. The training package is very in-depth on both presentations and PowerPoint, which I think would be suitable for users who are looking for best of both worlds. However, if you are just looking to learn how to use PowerPoint technically, you will probably find this training package too lengthy."
Indezine.com has teamed up with Martin Conradi and Richard Hall to bring you exclusive quotes from their book - 'That Presentation Sensation'.
The book itself is illustrated with stories and interviews with a raft of well-known business and academic figures - Marjorie Scardino of Pearson, Leon Kreitzman, the author and guru, Dianne Thompson of Camelot, Michael Ullmann of Insead, David Abbott, the famed advertising copywriter, and many more.
Suggestion: Click here to visit Google.com then search for Edward Tufte. Tufte has written several wonderfully lucid books on presenting complex information visually. We'll overlook the fact that he despises PowerPoint. Perhaps someday he'll realize that he really hates what some people DO with PowerPoint.
