June 17/08 Slide Makeover Video Podcast available

Just a quick note to let you know that a new Slide Makeover Video Podcast based on the ideas in "The Visual Slide Revolution" is available for your viewing through the iTunes Store or online. This video podcast shows the transformation of a simple slide from a Toastmasters leadership training presentation. The "after" slide connects better with the audience to make the point. If you are a member of Toastmasters, this is a great video to share with fellow members and with prospective members. If you know someone in Toastmasters, forward this to them.

This slide was sent in by one of the subscribers to the newsletter - someone just like you who is looking for a way to make their presentations more effective. If you want to submit some of your slides to be considered for a future slide makeover, e-mail them to me at Dave@ThinkOutsideTheSlide.com.

If you have already subscribed through iTunes or another podcatcher, the new podcast should be automatically downloaded when you next run the program.

Hi Dave,

I always enjoy watching your slide makeovers, because they show so much of the unfortunately still predominant PowerPoint culture and how things should be done better.

Personally, I think this slide makeover stops at half of the way - and this is why:

0) Maybe it is a good idea to avoid the yellow brush line standard PowerPoint template...

1) I would have put the headline "A healthy club..." on a separate slide (somewhere in the middle) and used a coloured background (maybe black or a more friendly blue).

2) The 3 pictures are nice - so why not showing each of them in full screen? Each with the statement below the pic as a headline...

The result would be a sequence of 4 slides, each with one statement/headline, that I think flow nicely

What do you think?
