The best, the second best, and the worst. The worst thing ever invented for presentations is the electronic visual presentation, better known as Death-by-PowerPoint, although it may just as easily be Freelance Graphics. Of course, I’m really referring to electronic visuals used badly, which is how most presenters use them. This also makes electronic presentations the second best presentation tool ever invented, because when used effectively, they can be awesome and really drive home the crux of your message. Which brings me to the very best presentation tool you’ve ever seen, discovered or heard of – your own personality. Which is why it so often leaves me shaking my head in sadness when a person with a great message succeeds in replacing his/her uniqueness with technology, thereby losing the opportunity to charm and persuade his/her audience.
