It’s conference season. Is your presentation ready?

It’s conference season. Is your presentation ready? Tom Davenport provides ten common-sense tips for designing quality presentations.  He emphasizes simplicity. How many times have you seen someone start their presentation and find out that the special font they chose isn’t available on the presentation computer.  While it is possible to include the font when saving the presentation, is a special font really necessary?  Davenport encourages the use of images but cautions readers to consider copyright issues when using images from flicker or Google.  The best way to do this is by using Creative Commons to access open-licensed images from these sites. Davenport concludes by encouraging presenters to practice. Presenters who are surprised by the contents of the “next slide” are really telling us that that their presentations aren’t worth attending. 

Happy presenting!
