One of my biggest pet peeves, after ten years in the audio-visual industry, is a bad presentation. For years I would sit in bad corporate presentations and bad conference presentations that literally put me to sleep. Genealogy presentations are no better in this aspect. Many a conference have I found myself struggling to keep my head erect.
I have addressed lecturing issues and bad presentations a few times in this blog. See my earlier posts:
- “Rocking” as a genealogical lecturer
- How do people learn, and how should we teach?
- 10 Lessons Learned from the “Other Side of the Microphone”
- Make your presentation less annoying
Show ‘N’ Tell: Creating Effective and Attractive Genealogy Presentations
This new book teaches you how to create a good presentation using PowerPoint (and other similar software). It discusses how to organize your material in the most effective manner, as well as how to design an effective presentation. Once you master these techniques, your audiences will leave your presentations truly impressed, and retain more of the information you provide than ever before!
The book also contains over 20 examples of slides from my own presentations, to help illustrate the design principles.
