14.Death by Power Point: How to Avoid Killing Your Presentation and Sucking the Life Out of Your Audience

About the Author:

Cherie Kerr

Publisher:

Execuprov Pr (January 2002)

ISBN No:

ISBN-10: 0964888254

ISBN-13: 978-0964888258

About the Book:

Kerr is right on track with her book Death by PowerPoint. If you are in charge of the presentation then you need to take charge and run the show. She discusses engaging and entertaining the audience form start to finish. It about de-bugging your presentation so you’re professional not foolish and so the audience has a memorable experience.

One can lose a group in ninety seconds, dim the lights down low, loose eye contact and you can be dead and not even know it. Kerr’s book can really help if you follow the steps but more importantly work on your delivery then your slides. PowerPoint was a great invention but I’ve seen it turn into an ineffective unless crutch. Now in business we have another new dynamic challenge to deal with- Webinars- the presentation that takes place over the Internet with no eye contact or physical in-person touch- I’m sure Kerr must have this one in the works.

Remember presentations are to cause interest and get people to take action- if your presentation is dead it’s over. Thanks for the great book, it helped help us get from point A to B faster and have more fun on the way.  It’s a quick easy read and a great tool for your reference library.
