PowerPoint Slide Makeover #70: Using proportional diagrams (example from Pres. Obama SOTU)

Below I’ve posted a new Slide Makeover Video Podcast based on the ideas in "The Visual Slide Revolution". In the recent State of the Union address, President Obama used some visuals in the enhanced broadcast on the web. One of those visuals was a proportional diagram. This makeover shows how you can use a proportional diagram effectively on a slide.

The slides I use in my makeovers are drawn from my consulting engagements and training workshops. If you want to submit some of your slides to be considered for a future slide makeover, e-mail them to me at

You can get all my podcasts through iTunes, subscribing to my YouTube channel, or through Brainshark. If you have subscribed via iTunes or YouTube, please provide your positive feedback on the videos in the Comments and Ratings areas of the service so others know the value you get from the videos.

Great analogy to show the psychadelic pie chart to illustrate what's wrong with the infographic.
