Solving the PowerPoint Predicament

Using Digital Media for Effective Communication

 

Don’t Just Present: Inspire!

Everyone uses PowerPoint, but how effective is your presentation at meeting the goals you’ve outlined? A great presentation is more than just a slideshow–it’s about using PowerPoint to its maximum potential to get your message across to your audience. That’s the PowerPoint Predicament. Tom Bunzel reveals how to conceive, plan, develop, and deliver truly effective business, academic, and inspirational communications, not just PowerPoint slideshows. Discover how to motivate your audience by:

  • Getting beyond bullet points to tell a story that touches your audience at the deepest levels
  • Mastering proven principles of effective communication
  • Planning, organizing, and designing every presentation for maximum impact
  • Making sure every word, image, effect, and slide exists for a good reason
  • Creating charts and diagrams that instantly make your point
  • Using animation, navigation, video, and audio to drive home your message, not distract from it
  • Avoiding mistakes that lead to boring presentations: no more “death by PowerPoint”
  • Building Web and self-running kiosk presentations that really work
  • Leveraging the rest of Microsoft Office to create even better presentations
  • Using third-party add-ons to communicate with PowerPoint even more effectively: video capture, flowcharting, DVD authoring, rehearsal, and more

When you present, you’re on the line: your credibility, your career, your future as a leader. Use your software and imagination to its full potential–with this book!

Developing a compelling PowerPoint presentation involves much more than mastering one program. It involves integrating different programs, third party tools, and hardware resources to convey a message that has been skillfully crafted. From blogs to podcasts to the rise of amateur digital photography and videography, there's ample evidence to the passion among the public for communicating effectively. You crave not a how-to manual but a frame of reference for telling your stories effectively, both in front of a group, online, and across multiple digital platforms and media.

Solving the PowerPoint Predicament will walk your through three fundamental steps: (1) honing (and sticking to!) a compelling message, mastering and applying appropriate technologies, (3) integrating technology with verbal delivery skills needed for a successful presentation. This book really gives you everything you need to deliver a successful presentation that people will remember.
