How To Make PowerPoint Look Like Prezi

PowerPoint Tips - prezi vs. powerpoint

While PowerPoint still holds approximately 95% of the presentation software market, some people prefer using Prezi due to its unique “zoom feature”, that moves the audience back and forth between a high level overview and specific individual slides (as seen in the video example below).

So, you need to put together an exciting presentation and are trying to decide between the traditional Microsoft PowerPoint, and Prezi, the newer, non-linear software tool.

Which software should you use for the job? Which presentation tool works better to motivate an audience to take action?

While each program has its benefits, both have come under criticism at some point.

In this post I’m going to break down both tools and discuss the pros and cons of each. Then, it’s up to you to decide which is best for your particular project.


Presentation Tips You Can Learn From Food Presentation

One of my personal goals for 2013 is to learn how to become a better cook. This is partially due to the fact that I am currently reading the new New York Times bestseller, The 4-Hour Chef, by one of my favorite authors Tim Ferris. It is also attributed to the fact that my brother, Kevin, is a professional chef who works at the Joël Robuchon, three Michelin Star, restaurant at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Sounds fancy? It is! It’s actually one the top restaurants in the country.

So, what does this have to do with presentation design?”

Well …

I remember not too long ago Kevin was explaining to me how his restaurant has a REALLY stringent process for how they plate (present) their food. And from what he was describing, I realized that there are many shared design principles between the worlds of cooking and presentation design.

Here is what I discovered. And don’t forget to comment and let me know what you think!

1)    Don’t Overcrowd The Display

A top chef knows that creating specific focal points on a plate allows for a much cleaner presentation for the guest. By increasing the space between items, the individual elements on the plate become more visually appealing. This principle of increasing space between items is known, in the presentation design world, as “whitespace” or “negative” space. Whitespace allows all the elements on a slide, to “breathe” and is key to creating a composition.
