Join David Diskin for an in-depth discussion in this video The good, the bad, and the ugly: A recap, part of PowerPoint Tips and Tricks for Business Presentations.
We are going to finish off the course with a recap Of The Good, The Bad, and…the downright Ugly.…Let's take a look at a series of slides and figure out what worked and what…didn't, and provide a little constructive criticism along the way.…Now at first glance, our initial slide doesn't look too bad.…Sure it could use a photo and perhaps the text is a little bit too big, maybe…too far apart, but can you see what's really wrong with it? Did you catch it?…All right, how about now?…That's right, there are more than just a few mistakes, spelling and grammar, on the slide.…
It always amazes me how often a simple typo or misspelling goes unnoticed.…Don't forget to spell check your slides when you're done and have someone else proofread.…I think we can all see what the problem is here: way too much text.…But how do you fix it?…This is better in that we've reduced the text, but let's keep going a little further.…Here we've taken the bullets and split them into two columns using the…Comparison Layout, and here I have split the content into two distinct slides.…
