Preventing Death by PowerPoint[R]: Tips for Effective Presentations that Inform and Engage
Donohue, Chip

PowerPoint[R] and other familiar presentation graphics programs like Apple[R] Keynote, Corel[R] Presentations[TM], Harvard Graphics[R] Pro Presentations, Lotus[R] Freelance Graphics, and OpenOffice Impress can help one become a more effective presenter. These programs are designed to organize words and images to create slides, speaker notes, and handouts that display information and enhance one's speech or presentation . . . or so they claim. They each include a variety of tools, templates, and themes that make it easy to create eye-catching, professional looking presentations in no time . . . or so they claim. If all of this is true, why do things go so horribly wrong so much of the time? In this article, the author identifies dos and don'ts so that one can live by the PowerPoint[R] golden rule: "Present unto others as you would have them present unto you." Some links to popular presentation graphics programs and websites about PowerPoint[R] are also listed.
