Flip charts. White boards. Overhead projectors. We’ve come a long way when it comes to the visual aspects of our presentations, but it seems most of us have settled on PowerPoint when it comes to presentation software. We try to avoid the “death by PowerPoint,” yet we have all sat through meetings – or even conducted meetings – with cumbersome, text-heavy presentations that only bore the audience. Visual techniques such as Presentation Zen help, but there must be something more.
Fortunately, there is: Prezi. Long known for its use in education, Prezi is ideal for use in the business sector. We’re visual creatures; we pay attention to things that attract our attention. Prezi makes material more visually appealing, but it’s more than just a shiny new toy. Let me show you what Prezi is, why it’s better than PowerPoint, how you can combine your online presentations with Prezi, and engage with your audience on a new level.
