Five Rules for Better PowerPoint Presentations

We’ve all been there, fidgeting, bored, wondering when this presentation will ever end.  Very few people know how to use PowerPoint effectively so that the audience is engaged and actually listen to the presenter.  One person who does know how to do this is Michael Hyatt of Working Smart and his article Five Rules for Better PowerPoint Presentations is a must read for anyone regularly stuck with making and delivering presentations.  Read the entire article to get the full benefits but his five rules are summarized here:

  1. Don’t give PowerPoint center stage
  2. Create a logical flow to your presentation
  3. Make your presentation readable
  4. Remember, less is more
  5. Distribute a handout

Michael must have forgotten rule #6:

Get your Tablet PC back and create your presentation using MindManager.  :)
