Bored of PowerPoint Bullet Points?


Written by Jane Hames

More and more, PowerPoint users want to avoid “Death By PowerPoint”. Bullet points can be overused in PowerPoint and during recent PowerPoint training we have been thining about how we could replace bullet points with something else. Most good presenters who use bullet points, just give a teaser or a summary of what they are going to talk about by adding a couple of words to a bullet point. Would you consider using images, maps, charts or some other visual indicator as an alternative? Here are a few ideas:

Use SmartArt diagrams to enhance a bulleted list:

Use maps or images instead of listing items:

Use icons and short descriptions:

Use charts and images to illustrate numbers:
