My new Campaign Against Death by PowerPoint aims to improve presentations skills and reduce the suffering of audiences. Instead of waiting for presenters to wake up and read the good advice of presentation experts, I want to harness the audience. The campaign lets the audience fight back—and help presenters.
To do your part, take 4 simple steps:
1) Go to www.tellnshow.com.
2) Download the invitation, which invites the presenter to get a free white paper.
3) Print the invitation and take it to a presentation.
4) If the presenter commits Death by PowerPoint, give the presenter the invitation.
The white paper, “From Death by PowerPoint to Life by PowerPoint with the Tell ‘n’ ShowSM Method,” is a mini-course in itself. It includes responses from a survey I did, telling the sad and funny real-life stories of death by PowerPoint experiences.
Mainly, the white paper explains what death by PowerPoint is and then shows presenters how to turn it into “life.” A final summary of takeaways provides a quick blueprint of what to do and what not to do.
Note: You don’t have to print out the invitation. You can give the presenter the URL for the white paper any way you want. The URL is www.tellnshow.com/whitepaper.html. The short version is http://budurl.com/b78t.
How easy is that? If audiences all over the world join the campaign, death by PowerPoint can be a thing of the past!
Contribute your experiences of death by PowerPoint or giving a presenter the invitation at www.tellnshow.com/contact.html. I’m also looking for ideas to get out the word to audiences everywhere.
