When someone brings up a PowerPoint at a meeting what’s your first thought?

How many slides until it’s over?

How long is this going to take?

What template did they use?

Why are they using transitions?

What value is this bringing?

Amazon has an infamous no Powerpoint policy, does it work?  Does everyone remember everything they need to say?

What if instead of having to talk about how to do something, you showed them what you did and how you’re doing it?

Would that be more powerful than Powerpoint?

Then start there, start with what would be the most powerful way to communicate your objective, and move forward from there, don’t settle for less.  If it’s Powerpoint great, otherwise, pick something else.

That’s the policy.
