… but anecdotally, you know it’s true:
Too much PowerPoint causes irritable growl syndrome
Oh yes, the Powerpoint disease, it’s a bad one. I know why you’re growling. Nothing worse than being in a presentation and sitting watching someone read aloud the sldes that you can quite easily read yourself without their help. My dear husband gives a lot of presentations and his goal is always to use as few slides as possible since people are there to see him TALK not see him READ.
Thank you. I got all Powerpointed out at work last week. I feel better now.
It’s very easy to get too much of it, yes. But it’s such a shame that people use it so badly. But that’s of course becaue using it well requires more thought and more work. Go figure…
I overheard one person saying they’re interview technique was to ask canditates to prepare a presentation, make sure the computer wasn’t working and give the job to the one who managed to present anyway!
Oh crap, I’d almost forgotten that I’m down to give a talk on Friday.
Time to boot up the powerpoint again….
