Microsoft SlideFest

A great move by Microsoft is this contest, called SlideFest, to encourage all of us to up-level our PowerPoint skills.

Rather than slides dense with bullet points, they encourage a storytelling format and provide a number of sample presentations to inspire. They so inspired me, I just might submit something.

Are you thinking about working up a SlideFest entry? Remember to think “storytelling” and not “presenting”. You might find some of these resources useful

  1. My library of video tips and tricks
  2. My 7-part series on storytelling in the boardroom
  3. Storytelling tips from Barack Obama and Martin Luther King Jr.
