What Do Your Slides Say About You?

Recently, InFocus held a “What Not to Present” contest, looking for the worst PowerPoint slide ever created.  After reviewing tons of horrific submissions, they came up with their top choices, and yep, are they bad.

Your slides are a visual representation of your idea and are a reflection of you.  So, we wondered what kind of people make slides like the ‘winners’ of the InFocus contest.  Mouse over the slides below to see who may be responsible for these gems.

So ask yourself, “What does this slide say about me/my idea?”  If the answer conjures up unpleasant images of pocket protectors or big hair, take another pass at your slides, and remember Duarte’s Golden Rule: Never deliver a presentation you wouldn’t want to sit through.
