Just Say No: Five Alternatives to Bullets

Thursday, 11:15 am – 11:45 am

Nothing has led to more bad presentations than PowerPoint’s “Click to add” bullet placeholder. Just say no to convention, get out of PowerPoint-think and learn how to convert those pesky bullet points into well-designed and more effective slides that are clear and memorable.

This session will discuss how design principles, content strategies and even little-known software features can help you eliminate bullet points in your presentation.

Topics will include:

  • “Chunking” your content
  • Harnessing iconography
  • Surprisingly smart ways to use SmartArt
  • Why more is usually better when it comes to slide count
