Bullet points, still going strong!

Another day, another death by Powerpoint later, I'm EX-CI-TED! Friday night fever fired up. So what if presentations are still dominated by slides covered in jargon mush? ... if presenters still  read directly from the screen to a presumably illiterate bunch ? ... if cliparts are still the oh-my-god-check-it-out-visuals-in-your-faaaace-you-guys!...?!... All this is good news. It means standing out is going to [...]

Just what’s so terrible about Powerpoint???

8 inspiring TED talks that make the best of Prezi

Prezi was one of the first businesses in which TED ever invested, and for good reason. TED's inspiring tagline 'Ideas worth sharing' is perfectly aligned with the intention behind Prezi. But first...

Why spatial memory is your friend

Prezi taps into our spatial memory. Just like in real life. Picture this: if someone asked you to describe your journey from home to work, what comes easier: visualising the landmarks or thinking of a list of words? Chances are you pictured your journey. One of the reasons we love working with Prezi is that it takes advantage of [...]

Powerpoint vs Prezi: Which one to use?

If you don’t choose a method that compliments your subject matter, then your presentation won’t be as effective as possible.
