TBF022 – Pitchmen and Presentations

  • SumoMe

In Episode 22 I talked about the two blog posts that I put up this week.

The first blog post was some general guidelines about creating a slide-style presentation.  Notice I didn’t say ‘PowerPoint’.  We also talked a bit about the different types of presentation software. We looked briefly look at OpenOffice Impress, Apple Keynote, Google Docs Presentation, MS Office PowerPoint (of course) and lastly, Prezi.  I would really suggest you check out Prezi is you’re doing a presentation that may not be training.  It looks great but it’s not really engaging.

The second post is discussed in the final 1/3 of the podcast. I look at the characteristics of TV infomercial personalities (Pitchmen) and how we may be able to take a lesson or two from them.
