We know best practices for presentations (“Use less text!” “Create separate handouts!” “Avoid bullets points!”), but the realities of corporate America often get in the way when we sit down in front of the computer. In this webinar, presentation strategist Nolan Haims shares numerous techniques and strategies, developed out of pure necessity, for achieving best practices while still meeting tight deadlines and contending with difficult clients.
- Multiple tactics for encouraging less text and fewer bullet points, including the disappearing content trick and the ridiculously simple “chunking” technique
- Leveraging PowerPoint’s Notes view in unique ways to effortlessly create well-designed and distinctly different handouts
- Creating “reskinnable” templates that can be turned into custom presentations in minutes
- Keeping presentations highly editable through vector graphics and PowerPoint image-editing techniques
- Breaking out of PowerPoint-think with “walking” and portrait print decks
