Summary

The art of presenting needs a serious shake-up. Presenters are constantly on the lookout for fresh ideas to get their messages across but mistakenly believe PowerPoint is the right medium to do so. This often results in uninspiring presentations consisting of countless lackluster slides that their audiences are forced to sit through - sometimes at the expense of their own sanity.

In How to Make Your Point Without PowerPoint, renowned public speaker and Speakers Hall of Fame inductee Douglas Kruger aims to end the tedium of the PowerPoint medium. He offers 50 practical suggestions to enhance your presentation skills - including the kinds of formats you can use, different methods of delivery, and some alternative visuals - so you and your team can trade in the slides and get brainstorming. This book proves that it is possible to do an excellent job, even a superior one, without slides, by learning to truly engage and persuade. In this way you will stand out every time and, as the presenter, have an entertaining time of it!

Douglas Kruger is a business consultant, an author, and a professional speaker and is the only person in Africa to have won the Southern African Championships for Public Speaking a record five times. In 2016, in honor of excellence in his craft, he was inducted into the Speakers Hall of Fame by the Professional Speakers Association of Southern Africa. He earns his living delivering presentations to audiences in South Africa and around the world. He has published a number of books with Penguin Random House, including the acclaimed Own Your Industry and They're Your Rules Break Them!.

Great. Wish it's chapters were named...

Great tips from a great author. Just wish the chapters had names attached to them. Makes for a great binge listen, but difficult to get back to for pointers.
