“Death by PowerPoint” is an aspect or method of presenting that is still very alive and well. Everyone has an opinion about PowerPoint. My opinion is that PowerPoint as a support should be used very minimally. There is nothing worse than somebody presenting by reading entries from PowerPoint slide to PowerPoint slide. It becomes boring, monotonous, repetitious and seemingly never-ending for audience members.
Using PowerPoint to highlight major elements of the speech or to offer a succinct summary is fine. But for mine that should be it.
PowerPoint never be allowed to take over from the presenter with PowerPoint becoming the major aspect of the presentation, the presenter be being little more than an auxiliary.
