Please, for Your Audience’s Sake, Use PowerPoint Animation Well
How many times have you seen terrible PowerPoint presentations that use those horrible fly-in animations along with the unbearable screeching tires sound effect? That’s not a presentation—that’s a disaster….
Highly recommended for any PowerPoint users. The author Aaron Stannard is community outreach manager at SmartDraw, the world’s most popular business graphics software. But this article is not a product promotion for their smart PowerPoint integration with fantastic graphics. He indicated that, the systematic misuse of PowerPoint’s capabilities caused that well-known “Death by PowerPoint” syndrome around the world. And using PowerPoint animation wisely could make presenters out of trouble.
• Animation lets you present your ideas in a logical sequence, when done correctly.
• Animation helps your audience relate to an idea by focusing their attention on one point of order at a time.
• Animation builds up to your punch lines.
We’re making a public show for our business advancement, so we shouldn’t make business presentation boring anyway. That’s my idea.
