We’ve all had to sit through a presentation just watching the presenter read off of a series of PowerPoint slides for an hour; it’s excruciating and why they refer to it as ‘Death by PowerPoint’. 

If you’re one of the many that has to make presentations to a group, do us a favor - get rid of those boring Powerpoint slides and try using in its place.

Prezi is a free web-based tool that allows you create a much more interesting and dynamic presentation that is really easy to lay out using their virtual canvas. It allows you to present your info in a more engaging manner. 

You can start by importing those old boring PowerPoint slides so you do not have to start all over and because it’s a web based presentation, it’s easily shared with your audience. 

And here’s one more tip; instead of creating a long list of text heavy slides, try using images and short bullet points to encourage you to deliver your info in more of a conversational way. The idea is to talk to your audience not your slides.
