You suck at PowerPoint

Check out this great post by designer Jesse Desjardins on Slideshare. You will learn a thing or two.

Review from Lifehacker

It's hard enough standing in front of a crowd delivering a presentation. To ease the worry, here are five mistakes that are easily avoidable when creating a PowerPoint presentation.

It's easy to blame PowerPoint for boring presentations, but designer Jesse Desjardins suggests that more often than not, the speaker's to blame, not the tool. In Desjardins' presentation (embedded above), he outlines five common presentation design mistakes that can be easily avoided, along with suggestions on how you might do so.

While it's important to build your presentation so your audience isn't stuck reading bullet point after bullet point, and instead are open to larger graphics that can be seen from even the farthest rows back, it really comes down to preparation. In the end, it's all about preparation. In fact, Desjardins suggests:

An outstanding 1-hour presentation takes 30 hours or more of prep time.

That may seem extreme, and for most of us it is (you won't always have time to make an outstanding presentation), but it does underscore that a good presentation requires a lot of time.
