Say “No” to PowerPoint Week

Posted by Kristin Arnold on February 5, 2011

The latest issue of Fast Company proclaimed that February 7th is the beginning of “Say No to PowerPoint Week.”  What if all the PowerPointers in corporateland decided to embargo PowerPoint for an entire week?  What would happen then?

I  believe  people would have to get more creative in their presentations.  Try a little Prezi anyone?.  Others would rely heavily on their handouts (which, in the spirit of the embargo would have to be in a different format?)  You would actually have to prepare for your speech rather than read the slide.  You would have to rely on the content rather than the snazzy slides.

Or is corporate America just too addicted to  PowerPoint to be able to quit, cold turkey for a week?

Hmmm… there could be a fair number of  benefits to put the remote control away for a week.  What do you think?  Are you up for the challenge?
