Presentation Slide Mastery: No Dull PowerPoint

Two major skills are essential for business: writing and presenting. The first, requires entire blogs and books dedicated to the art and craft. The latter, is through practice, experience, and inspiration. Most blogs rarely feature slides as a medium for presenting information. However, I recently ran into SlideShare, a youtube of slides on a variety of topics. It’s a great resource for inspiration

The presentation below is a great introduction on designing better slides. Follow through to SlideShare to find more presentations, on a variety of topics. There are many great presentations and many bad horrible presentations.

See the Steve Jobs iPhone presentation after the jump.

Here is a video clip of the original iPhone announcement. Pay particular attention to the simplistic slides, themes that Steve develops, and repetition to drive home the point.

  1. Very Powerful. Simple but exciting. I don't even work for Apple and I was getting excited. I never thought a Power Point presentation could be so simple and still keep my attention from beginning to end. ( I loved the colors and the use of repetition.)
