The Successful Presenter

Communicate When It Counts

Next Version of PowerPoint Should Contain ...

I have been watching a conversation unfold on LinkedIn under the heading: “What would you most like to see in presentation software that isn’t available now?”

I have two suggestions.

First, the software should not allow a font size smaller than 72-point. If you use slides, this would pretty much guarantee that everyone in the room can read what’s on the slide.

My second suggestion is that the program be linked to your bank account. For every slide you use over five slides, $50 would be removed from your bank account and donated to the charity of your choice.

This would ensure that every slide you use has value, and would eliminate ‘Death by PowerPoint’ worldwide in a heartbeat.
