Comparing Power Point Slides

Right now I'm busy working on materials for a conference presentation on effective use of Power Point. I plan to show example presentations to illustrate ideas about using slides as a visual medium to support the presenter, rather than just an outline of talking points.

Here are two versions of the same presentation: one with typical, bullet point slides, the other is less typical but more powerful. Look at both slide decks and notice:

  • Which one has fewer total slides?
  • Which one is more visually striking?
  • Which one functions more as a document?
  • Which one requires a presenter/audio?
  • In which one do the main ideas stand out most clearly?

The interesting slide show is great. No wonder it is a featured show on slide share.
