Today’s blog post invites you to pause for a second and to think about one of the most used tools of everyday office life. Powerpoint. What once was considered a revolution in presentation technique today often turns out to be a threat to every knowledge transfer. With a short comic strip Nadia von Holzen and Nadia Lanfranchi would like to make you check over your presentation strategies. What is key to an engaging presentation? Are there alternatives to Powerpoint? And what should be considered in order to avoid Powerpoint’s pitfalls?

    Dear Felix, thanks for your smile! I think it’s a good point to rembember Peter Point’s frustration of too many of always the same… There are many ways indeed! Let’s try. The dynamic and energy in the audience will be our yardstick. Best, Nadia
