Prezi as an alternative to PowerPoint for great story telling.

By Manoj Raheja

Now don’t get me wrong, I love PowerPoint as much as the next guy…and right off the bat, let’s get one thing straight – I’m not saying you should step away from it completely. PowerPoint is still one of the most effective and widely accepted tools to create a presentation. Heck I’ve even written a blog about how to use it more effectively. Having said that – sometimes you have a story to tell that is different from the rest. It’s a special story…and it deserves to be told with impact! It’s a story that has the power to inspire, to excite, and cannot be constrained by the shackles of the “linear slide based presentation” that is PowerPoint!

Sometimes – you need a presentation tool that isn’t so linear. Sometimes you need a tool that can deliver on the real elements of story telling (i.e. twists, turns, and surprise endings!). Click this link to see an “example presentation” I put together that will hopefully strike a chord. Use the right arrow button to click through the presentation.

This is just a very small sample of what Prezi can do for you. I won’t lie – it will take an investment in time to learn how to use it, but I can assure you that if you really need to deliver a WOW presentation – this tool can help you do it!
