Design for quick changes–because changes always happen

PowerPoint Tips

Use hi-resolution images of at least 150 dpi (dots per inch). At Presentation Summit 2012, Nolan Haims , Director of Presentation at Edelman (a large PR firm) gave a session called “In the Trenches” about how to design presentations for quick changes and high-end results. His department is responsible for designing presentations that the firm uses to get new clients. Not only do they have to be top quality, but they often need to be changed at the last second.

Beyond Bullet Points

Optimize Word and Excel images for 150 dots per inch (DPI).

Such software works with a server and offers more options such as treatment of images and how much to sacrifice in image quality.

Dave Paradi's PowerPoint Blog

I’ll be doing a program in May for the DPI-PDW Conference in Ottawa that includes ideas on how to find and incorporate content from the web. Web content is becoming more and more important to include in our presentations. Whether it is traditional research we do or new content like blogs and Twitter, we need to use our access to a broader range of information to bring the latest perspectives to our audience.
