Using a PowerPoint deck soon?

Remember: even when you’re using a slide deck in a presentation, you’re not a slave to it. Believe it or not, you can still break up the talk by utilizing other visuals. You can still walk to a different part of the room, away from the screen. And, you can still switch to a black slide and draw something simple and meaningful on a whiteboard. Your Powerpoint deck is one tool of many in your presentation toolbox.

In that spirit, here’s today’s video blog, featuring a surprising visual used by Bill Gates. Now, start thinking, can you incorporate a memorable experience in your next presentation?

Please share any ideas for visual SHARPs that you’ve been using (and like Gates, hold the malaria)!

  1. Kinda of a “Flash of the Obvious,” Ben.

    There are a lot of things we intuitively know, but until someone, like you just did, point it out, we’re not utilizing it.

    I’ll show my digital recorder at a presentation tonight rather than a slide of it – Thanks!
