Making Radically Better Use of Visual Aids: Everything You've Learned is Wrong

Almost every PowerPoint presentation ever created is junk. If you didn't know that, this talk will convince you. If you did, you'll find out why. Either way, you'll learn some radical but compelling principles about how to construct effective slides. Applicable whether you're using PowerPoint, Keynote, Google, OpenOffice, Prezi, or anything else. Where do you use text, when, why, and how? How do you determine the most effective images to use and when? Find out the answers to these and many more questions, plus the basics of making and displaying presentations if you're just getting started.

Peter will go through the brain learning dynamics that will help you create arresting and useful visuals, as practiced by the leading presenters in the technology education field he is a member of.

This presentation will use plenty of examples displayed on a giant screen at Mike Mabey's beautiful house. This will be a great place and time to reboot this group after a hiatus.

Peter Scott founded this Meetup and has been a consultant to NASA for thirty years. He's also a technology book and video author, and executive coach.

Mike's house is in Rocklands. Parking is available next to the house on both sides of Richmond, and some on Despard. Members of other meetups are welcome provided you RSVP and subject to space availability on a first-come first-served basis.

    It's looking like I probably can't make it, unfortunately. I'll still try though.

    Turns out I can't. Too bad, it's a great topic.
