As we near the end of the semester, I will occasionally post links to good (and bad) examples of slide presentations, tools and tips for developing presentations. I’d also like to remind you that you can also use this blog to post on these topics, as long as you can relate the point to public relations.
Today’s example comes from one of my favorite blogs, Presentation Zen. We’ve talked in class about the power of images to help you create your story. Here author Garr Reynolds explains–with excellent examples–how images can be used badly, so that they are distracting and actually take away from the points you are trying to make. Since you will soon be doing the second round of in-class presentations, take note and be careful to avoid these common mistakes.
