25 Fantastic PowerPoint Presentations for Your Inspiration | Top Design Magazine - Web Design and Digital Content

 

[Excerpt:] I think everyone of us had to make a boring PowerPoint at least once. What most of us hate the most is seeking inspiration to create those pages because creating a perfect presentation can be compared with designing a full website. You need a startup page, a menu, content and a final page which can be compared to a footer. In this article you can see a collection of 25 cool PowerPoint presentations from which you can get inspiration.

When Is Rehearsing a Presentation a Bad Idea? | by Nick Morgan via Public Words

When is rehearsing a presentation a bad idea? Clients often try to talk themselves out of rehearsal, because they’re pressed for time, because they don’t like the feeling of rehearsal (you’re not in control yet), or because they argue that...

Using Great Storytelling (In Your Presentations) To Grow Your Business @FastCompany

Using Great Storytelling (In Your Presentations) To Grow Your Business @FastCompany | PopcornPrez | Scoop.it

Using Great Storytelling To Grow Your Business | Fast Company

 

[Excerpt:]

Every two months, I pull together a community of innovators. We meet somewhere in New York City, usually a boardroom overlooking a park or cityscape. But last month we all found our way into an acting studio operated by The TAI Group to learn about storytelling.


The members of this group certainly already know something about the topic. They are senior executives at some of the largest corporations, partners in some of the most prestigious consulting and private equity firms, and several cutting-edge entrepreneurs. But the more you know, the more you realize there is to learn, and this group wanted to learn more about how to use effective storytelling to drive change in and grow their organizations.


The experience shocked me, to be honest. I considered myself an expert and snobbishly thought there was little more to learn. How wrong I was. Here are my two key takeaways from this session. Apply them today at your next meeting or phone call and I am willing to bet you will have a better result.

 5 Simple Tweaks for PechaKucha Presenters | by Tweak Your Slides blog

 

[Excerpt:]

This Friday, I attended PechaKucha Night Orlando Volume 5. If you are not already aware (and you are if you’ve heard me speak for more than five minutes or taken my class), I love PechaKucha! I look forward to the PechaKucha day in my class each month.......I couldn’t help but be slightly disappointed though, not by a lack of interesting ideas, but by the appearance of a few old school presentation design practices. Presenters used pixelated images, pre-made templates, bullets, and a bit more noise than signal at times. I believe the habits stem from slide anxiety......

Best of 365 Days of Tumblr by Aaron Christopher Judd 

 

[Excerpt:]

Last year, I started this project called "365 Days of Tumblr" in which I'd post a new image/quote everyday for one year. That was 11 months ago, and since I'm about to wrap up the project, I thought I'd put together a "Best Of" post. Split into 4 quarters (3 months) and chosen based on my personal favourites and my followers favourites.

This is PART ONE.

Getting better and better | by Dr. Devdutt Pattanaik

 

[Excerpt:]

The Durga statue worshipped during Dassera festival in Bengal, Orissa and Assam is made over a period of several weeks, starting soon after the chariot festival ends in Puri, Orissa. First a frame is made of bamboo that is covered with straw, then layered with clay, then covered with layers of paint. Finally.......Presentations made to sell an idea to customers need to be created like a Durga statue. Not all at once but slowly and systematically. First the broad ideas, then the details, then the data supporting the claims, then the graphs and the charts and the images, finally the layout and cosmetic touches before the grand presentation to the client......
