3 books for better PowerPoint – Design your slides in the sand

It’s summer time!  Even if you don’t have the summer off like school kids, hopefully you’ll eke out some extra time for some fun in the sun with family and friends.  Each summer our family sneaks out to Dewey Beach, Delaware, to put as much sand between our toes as possible.

Along with some new tunes, swim goggles and sandals, I’ll put a few books in my beach bag.  In the spirit of the season, here’s my recommended summer reading list to improve your presentation skills.  Read just one of these books, apply their methods, and you’ll be a much better presenter by the Tuesday after Labor Day.  For a gold star, read all three and then watch each author’s TED talk.

1) Presentation Zen by Garr Reynolds

2) Resonate by Nancy Duarte

3) The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs by Carmine Gallo

Have a great and safe summer!  Enjoy every precious moment of fun that comes your way.

    Wow! Just in time for a presentation I gave today, where in my usual style of mostly slides that are heavy on graphics, light on words, and without bullet points. Seemed to go well, and a couple of people were even kind enough to comment on how good they thought the slides were So it does make a difference! I’m going to be doing it this way more often (although sometimes the bullets are useful cues (crutches?))!
