Video: How to avoid death By PowerPoint by David JP Phillips (TEDxStockholmSalon)

David JP Phillips provides tactical tips for making clean presentation slides so they support your message. Powerpoint should be used as a visual aid, it should not be the entire presentation. The key takeaways include: keep to one message per slide, make the most important part of your slide the biggest (titles/headers don’t have to be the biggest on the slide if they are not important), use contrast to direct focus, and use a dark background so that more attention is drawn to the presenter.
