PRESENTATION INSPIRATION #2:

    PACKED WITH TEXT?

      Have you ever experienced that sinking feeling when a slide pops up on the screen, and it’s just crammed with tiny text? (Or, even worse, when the presenter starts reading it to you, word for word?)

      EXPERTS AGREE:

      SLIDES LIKE THAT ARE HARD TO GRASP AND REMEMBER.
      It’s pretty common for people to pack slides full of text and content, but most presentation experts recommend avoiding that.

      If you have existing PowerPoint files you're thinking of rebuilding in Haiku Deck, you can simply import them into Haiku Deck Zuru, and they'll automatically be cleaned up and made into gorgeous visual presentations without any extra work on your part (thanks, Artificial Intelligence!).

      ONE IDEA PER SLIDE.

      EXPERTS AGREE: STICK TO
      Narrowing down to one idea at a time makes your presentations clearer and more effective.

      But limiting yourself to one idea per slide can be challenging for some... which is why we're practicing it today!

      FOR EXAMPLE,

      CHECK OUT THE FOLLOWING SAMPLE SLIDE:

      Untitled Slide

      Click to Edit

      THAT CAN BE CHALLENGING, BUT AFTER SOME PRACTICE,
      Though it might seem like an efficient use of space to pack that much into one slide, it's the kind of slide that’s very tempting to read out loud. Which also happens to be the number one thing that people who listen to presentations find annoying.

      TWO-MINUTE CHALLENGE:

      TURN THE EXAMPLE SLIDE INTO A HAIKU DECK
      Try turning the sample slide from this deck into a short Haiku Deck, with one slide for each point. If you'd like an example, check out ours here:

      And if you'd like that slide all by itself for reference or print, click here:
