It’s almost Christmas, and even those of you who don’t celebrate it can appreciate the wonderful non-religious song The Twelve Days Of Christmas. I like the way it builds up and repeats the messages until you end up remembering it all and going through it all at the end. Some presentations would benefit from building up in this way.
Anyway, as a fun post to finish the year, here are my Twelve Presentation Days of Christmas. Imagine this as the last verse, but of course if you want to sing it all verse by verse, be my guest! And as a New Year’s Resolution for 2011, perhaps you could consider NOT inflicting any of these on your audiences?
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year 2011! I’ll be back blogging in January.
The 12 (Presentation) Days of Christmas
On the twelfth day of Christmas, presenters sent to me:
Eleven fuzzy photos
Ten crappy clip-arts
Nine 3D pie-charts
Seven clashing colours
Six corporate logos
…Five bullet points…
Four moving GIFs
Three stick men
Two comic fonts
And a printout of their awful slides.
