Presentations are stereotyped. A speaker stands in front of an audience, uses PowerPoint to guide a talk. And says very little that departs from the slides being shown. 

Frequently, the speaker provides a handout or electronic version of the PowerPoint as a record of the talk. Depending on the nature of the talk, a few minutes may be left at the end for questions. 

This format is almost universal. And it takes place thirty to forty million times a day, according to some estimates. It’s led to a new expression … Death by Powerpoint … one slide at a time.  

In this episode we speak with Eric Bergman who believes with a little less presentation and a little more conversation … we can make presentations more interesting, and ultimately effective. 

And we can relegate the term Death by PowerPoint to the dust heap of history.
