PowerpointLess

Let us make this National No Slides Week.

I recently gave a presentation on photography but I did not show a single picture. I decided not to do one of those horrible presentations I hear about. I did not want to make people sit in uncomfortable hotel chairs eating bad food and endure another Powerpoint presentation. There is nothing more boring than a presentation about change where nothing happens.

Instead there was a conversation with the audience. The result was one of the more interesting evenings I have ever had. We talked about change and how to survive and thrive. We learned from each other. It was communication in its simplest and best form. The food was great but the conversation was better.

If you are going to give a presentation soon, find the courage to try it without slides.
