Social Network Presentation Made Simple?

By Andrew Ivey | Presentations

A PowerPoint social network presentation from the the Dachis Group aims to make your understanding of the social networking revolution that much easier. The Dachis Group, based in Austin Texas has the mission:

“to help businesses create and capture value from emerging trends in technology, society and the workplace. We call this approach Social Business Design: the intentional creation of dynamic and socially calibrated systems, process, and culture.”

Phew! That’s quite a mouthful. And you thought that social networks were a breeze.

Social Network Presentation Suffers With PowerPoint

Their mission isn’t any easier to understand when it’s portrayed with a set of PowerPoint presentation slides.

The first two slides look classy. They feature strong images and there’s an interesting quotation. So, we are encouraged. But then we come across a pie chart. And what a pie chart it is. Because it contains no fewer than 19 separate slices. In fact, five of the slices make up 83% of the total. More interesting here, perhaps, is either the skew or the long-tail.

But it doesn’t get any better. In fact, it gets slowly worse. Since busy and text-rich slides begin to dominate.

Social Network Presentation Aims To Simplify…

It just goes to show that no matter the level of innovation involved there’s much more to presenting with PowerPoint than meets the eye. Simple design, simple text and an easy colour palette are the foundations for a good presentation. A coherent message is also another good thing!
