Who needs Power Point?

Writing about web page

I think I really do love Prezi presentations but this is yet another 'Thing' that I had not heard of.

To complete this 'Thing' I decided that I was just going to recreate a presentation that I had already produced in Power Point. I could have just printed my existing slides to pdf then import them to the Prezi workspace and add a path between them to 'Prezify' the Power Point.

This approach didn't seem appropriate and I don't think I would have gotten a real feel for how the software could be used, so I took the content of the slides and structured it in logical groupings and sub-groupings with a flowing path between each group. I spent a bit of time exploring the the options in the bubble menu and playing with the different colour themes.

The result is the same presentation but it is easier to follow, it flows better and visually it looks better.

When I use Prezi for presenting at meetings in the future I think it is worth downloading a 'Portable Prezi' - not every meeting room has Internet access or if it does you can't guarantee that it will work when you want it to.
