Q: I’m holding a conference in 2 weeks and I need my presentation to look great.
I don’t want to stand there with a picture hanging on the wall behind me.
What do you suggest?
A: Two weeks is hardly enough time to produce a conference presentation, so you need a quick and dirty solution.
Find a strong picture theme that represents the message you’re trying to get across. You can locate pictures like these from a number of online photostock libraries. iStock and Shutterstock are both good places to start, though you can google for more if you want.
Aim for a fresh picture with each slide. Or better still, a fresh picture with each bullet point.
There are lots of interesting themes you can view online and these won’t cost a great deal compared with the value of a successful conference to you.
Having a better presentation will also inspire you do better when you’re up there on stage.
