That’s how to make presentations interesting!

This is presented in FilmLoop a cool new application letting you choose or publish your own photo streams that can also be used as a screensaver or sent to friends.

But FilmLoop is not the purpose of the post. Improving on the usual sleep inducing power points has been one of my aims. One who has mastered the art is Steve Jobs, the Apple CEO. Here’s a few shots of his MacWorld conference presentation earlier this year. What a change from the mind numbing endless bullet points with fonts too small to read past the first three rows and with too many presenters adding insult to injury by mostly reading their slide text to the audience, as if it was made up of illiterates!

Jobs, in contrast, shines with simplicity. A key word, figure or even symbol with a great graphic, that’s all he ever uses. His presentation is not a crutch but a support for exciting personal deliver.

Easy right, well apparently he spends hours rehearsing and going over every presentation, the result – brilliance and excitement.
