PowerPoint sucks. More accurately, most presentations suck, regardless of what software tool was used to create them. They suck because those who design them (often the same people who deliver them) are not skilled presentation developers nor great presenters. But Alexei Kapterev aims to help presenters worldwide improve their presentations by following his examples. Take a few minutes to view his presentation on presentations, “Death By PowerPoint” (see below). The slide deck makes the case for improving presentations by providing practical, no-nonsense advice and real-world examples.

Thanks to Maxwell Hoffmann for pointing us to this excellent resource (on our favorite presentation website, SlideShare.net).

If you use PowerPoint to create presentations, get some ideas for improving their visual value by viewing “Enhancing Visual Effects in PowerPoint Presentations” (below).
