It seems that we’re addicted to PowerPoint. Every time we have an opportunity to present, we prepare by firing up PowerPoint, reviewing old slide sets, and creating new slides. Can we break the habit? I’ve been trying to live without PowerPoint for about a year now.

It also makes for a more engaging, more interactive presentation. Watch the video for tips on how to do it.
