PowerPoint is many things—and not all of them good or bad—but the one thing PowerPoint is not is your presentation. Let me say that again: PowerPoint is not your presentation. You are, you and your ideas. PowerPoint is there merely to support your ideas and to help you convey those ideas.
A great PowerPoint can’t prop up weak ideas, but great ideas can stand up even without Powerpoint.
I’m not anti-PowerPoint. It’s a great tool when used properly, when not over-used, and when used as something to support you instead of the other way around. When you change the way you think about the role of PowerPoint, you’ll notice your audience changes the way they think about your presentations. With PowerPoint, less is usually more and ironically, the less PowerPoint you use, the more of an impact it has.
