Beyond Bullet Points III: Delivering your presentation

Movies and Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003 presentations have a lot in common. Both use spoken words and projected visuals to communicate information, and both seek to engage audience interest throughout an entire experience. But the difference is that movies somehow manage to communicate successfully without bullet points. Their secret? Movies tell stories.

In Cliff Atkinson's book Beyond Bullet Points: Using Microsoft PowerPoint to Create Presentations That Inform, Motivate, and Inspire, you can learn how to transform your PowerPoint presentations into stories that captivate your audience's interest. Use the hands-on examples and exercises from this book to strengthen both your PowerPoint presentations and your confidence as a public speaker while you learn professional storytelling techniques and other powerful presentation strategies.

Use the template below to help you begin the process of transforming your message into a story that inspires your audience.
