PowerPoint Slide Makeover - Illustrate your point with an analogy

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, online or through my YouTube channel. Analogies are a great way to help your audience put your point in context because it relates your point to something they are familiar with. This makeover transforms a text bullet point into a visual analogy that makes the point much clearer.

This slide was submitted by one of the participants in a workshop - 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.

excellent makeover.
One observation: isn't it better not to mix clipart with photography on the same slide?

Thanks for your comment. I would agree with not using clip art on slides in general, but what I used was a universal symbol of a person to make the point that the 26 who we do not hear from remain anonymous. If I used pictures of real people, I would have to find 26 different pictures and it would have distracted from the point in my opinion.
