I found this video to be educational, lively, and down right funny. How many of you have sat through a dry totally loaded PowerPoint presentation. Heck, in a past life I might have been one of those PowerPoint hungry presentation mongers myself. However, about four years ago I really stopped (almost) using them on a regular basis. I say almost because some clients do expect them. The reason I minimize the use now is I prefer to carry on a dialogue with my audience. That is the only way you can truly get down to the nitty gritty of why they came to see you speak in the first place. Now I must say the larger the audience the trickier this gets but it really should be tried by those who do like to hide behind their PowerPoint like a crutch.
Going back to why I found this to be a great discovery (which happened to come from a fellow student and not the professor)...all of my students are required to do a presentation in every class. Typically as part of a group project. Some students have never used a PowerPoint so it is good experience. This video can show them the do's and don'ts in a fun and enjoyable way.
I could go on and on about all the cool stuff I discovered this week but won't bore you. Instead I invite you to follow me on twitter @DonnaRogersHR. As soon as I find anything interesting in this class or otherwise HR, I share.
