PowerPoint and Design

Last week I had the opportunity of instructing a group of accountants (and other financial officers from around the state) in connection with the Utah Association of School Business Officials. In the training we discussed basic presentation design guidelines along with an extensive overview of the many features now available in Microsoft PowerPoint 2007.

At this point in my career (and the life of presentation software such as PowerPoint), I think it is vital to teach effective design along with the basics "how-tos" related to the software itself. Yes, it will be the right-brainers, the artsy-types that will be able to reach their students/participants/audience best.

Thus, I began the training with this presentation, primarily based upon Thomas Cunningham's article Avoiding Seven Deadly Multimedia Design And Presentation Sins.
