PowerPoint Slide Needs Work





business cartoon

A while back I was asked to give a presentation about cartooning and I had to learn PowerPoint.

You see I went through school before PowerPoint became commonplace, and most of my later sales jobs were in decidedly low tech fields. And now, despite earning a living selling cartoons to make boring presentations bearable, I’d never actually opened the program a single time.

So I spent a good week researching ideas, looking at techniques, and watching video. After some practice, I performed my talk for my wife who noted that I had a few slides that needed work, including one that was an incomplete continuation of several previous slides that read simply “more goes here.”

The above cartoon came pretty soon afterward.

    Mark,

    How much would it cost to use this cartoon in a slide presentation?

    Talking about presentation tools, have you listened to the interview with Chuck Dietrich, CEO of SlideRocket on Small Business Trends Radio?
