  1. What I’d like to see in PowerPoint Slide Design in 2009:

    Id love to see more corporations throwing out old fashioned,text dense, bullet point riddled slides and encouraging more simple, clear, graphic designs.

    Internal competitions for the best most effective presentations as voted upon by the audience would help create a new culture.

    I don’t know about the US but here in the UK bullet points still seem to rule in far too many organisations.

    I’d also like to see more published research into what actually works best in different types of contexts.

    Finally I’d like to see power point having alternative default formats for on-line versus live presentations to help people learn how to use it appropriately in different contexts
