Ugh, PowerPoint…boring, repetitive, canned, right? What if I could show you how your slides could become beautiful, magical, and enthralling? When I began speaking, I called upon my 20+ years experience in graphic design, my childhood hobby of magic, and my love of storytelling to create slides that weren’t just a little bit better; they actually drew applause from my audiences! Anyone applauding your slides? It can happen! In the No Power & No Point session, I will share everything I’ve learned and developed about how to create and implement innovative slides that can dramatically enhance your presentations. I’ll delve into every aspect of slides—fonts, colors, textures, animation, and more—and show you how and why to improve every one. You have not seen anything like this before! Key Takeaways: • A change in the way we regard and approach slides will result in markedly better presentations. Better presentations result in improved audience attention and reaction, increased motivation for the speaker, and added value for all. • PowerPoint and Keynote have amazing, mostly-untapped potential. There are dozens of tips, tricks, and techniques which can be tweaked and transformed, most of which are unknown or ignored by users. • Using innovative, interactive techniques with slides can make an audience weep, laugh, or gasp with amazement. The screen can be a powerful partner, not just a glowing rectangle with bullet points on it.
