I consider myself an average presenter. Not terrible, but not great. I’m working on being a great presenter.
To this end, as well as working on what I should be doing, I’ve also been spending time analysing what should be avoided. Over the coming weeks and months I’ll be sharing a few tips on what not to do. Most of course are things I’ve been doing for years, and only recently woken up to. Some are gems I’ve seen in others. Some are like a bad flu going round… which brings me to my first tip today:
Tip #1 : Using Zoomit != Great presentation
The ZoomIt virus: I don’t know if you’ve had to suffer through this one lately, but it really takes its toll. Five minutes of someone zooming in and out and you’re feeling sea sick. (ZoomIt is a presenting tool that allows you to zoom in to areas on the screen – download it here)
Here’s a quick video showing just how annoying the ZoomIt virus can be, and… (dun dun dah) the *amazing* solution. Enjoy :-)
