I feel a little bad, as though I am not being loyal to a good friend. PowerPoint has served me faithfully for many years. I remember creating a much lauded presentation using PowerPoint in high school- yes, I’m a Gen Y. Imagine my professor’s surprise in college when, for a project, I created an interactive Jeopardy game using PowerPoint- I received an “A”. Even as recent as last year, I used PowerPoint, as a keynote speaker, to create a social media presentation for a women’s conference in Ghana.
Fast forward to a few months ago. My seemingly happy love affair with PowerPoint was destroyed when I discovered Prezi- the latest development in presentation software. Prezi allows users to set up presentations closer to the way in which people think- based on perspective. Prezi offers zooming and tilting abilities. We don’t think linearly, now we don’t have to present that way either. Below is my favorite Prezi on Prezi-
I knew I was on to something when, during a National Speakers Association presentation, an attendee asked me what software I was using. I immediately began to hear the buzz of other audience members excitement over this new technology.
Yesterday, I was hired by a client to help her design her first Prezi. She caught on fast and is totally ON FIRE about her upcoming presentation. She is a government contractor who conducts program trainings. Needless to say, her client won’t know what hit her! Learning how to use Prezi can be a bit time consuming, but with a little help, it can be quite simple.
If you’re still using PowerPoint, take a moment to check out Prezi. They are currently offering a 60 day free trial- you have nothing to lose!
