Simple, fun and informative read
on 17 November 2013
This is a very quick read, but definitely worth a read. Having endured far too many 'death by powerpoint' moments at events, I was in the camp of 'I don't use slides'. Through my association with the Professional Speaking Association (which is how I met the author Lee Jackson in person), I have been persuaded to selectively add a few slides back into my talks and keynotes. This book has given me the steer on how to do this in a way which enhances recall and looks as if a professional graphic designer has designed the slides.
What this book will do is:
* Explain the business benefit to using slides to enhance your presentation
* Show the typical mistakes most people make with slides and how you can avoid these mistakes
* Demonstrate how you can use techniques graphic designer's use to make your slides look damn good.
I read the kindle edition and was concerned that it wouldn't have the full impact that the colour paper book version of the book has. I need not have been concerned as the book translates well across to kindle.
