PowerPoint: Should I use PowerPoint or a visual aid when presenting?
When used effectively PowerPoint and other visual aid software can add considerable value to a presentation. The only reason they receive such bad press is because most presenters smother their slides in words. The old saying ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’ has stood the test of time because most of us connect with pictures. The time to use PowerPoint, Keynote, Prezi or any other software is when you are certain that the idea or message you are presenting demands more than words to help you to connect with your audience.
