6 Worst Presentations Ever & Why They Suck [#5 Is CRAZY]

How many of these blunders do you make in your presentation slides? Or perhaps how many of these worst presentation slides ever did you actually have to sit through?!

Some of these examples of the worst presentations ever will make you laugh or even cry. If your presentation slides are looking anything like these, abort mission. I repeat, abort mission.

 

1. Information Overkill

Too much information

We have all been a victim of this one. Overloading your slides with information is a real turn off to any audience. It will bore your audience to death and force them to read off your slides instead of paying any attention to you.

“Slides should reinforce your words, not repeat them.” – Seth Godin

 

2. Cheesy Images

Really?! The internet is an amazing resource for professional stock images and yet if you still produce a collage of low-quality cheesy images… I can assure you that nobody is going to be excited about your presentation.

 

3. Haphazard color schemes

Clashing colored fonts and background

Need we say more? Your eyes are probably hurting right now. Bear in mind that slides projected on a screen tend to be fainter in color too. So, choose your color scheme meticulously.

 

4. Boring fonts are boring

Monotonous default fonts

This low-quality slide deserves an award for presenting the most exciting holiday of the year in the most boring way possible.

 

5. Unnecessarily fancy fonts

Flashy fonts overkill for a formal topic

Dressing well is one thing. But wearing a sequined party dress to a meeting is just awkward and inappropriate. That’s exactly what’s happening in this slide. Aim to strike a balance between creativity and professionalism.

 

6. Sloppy Organization

Poor proximity between text and images

Splashing images and text on a slide without organization will leave your audience confused about where to look. In this case, being organized can help you to save a life!

 

Avoid making the worst presentation slides ever

Is PowerPoint really still mandatory? 350 PowerPoint presentations are delivered every second of a day. But how many of them are actually beautiful and engaging presentations?

Be different.

There are many alternatives to PowerPoint that can help you to design presentation slides better and avoid these atrocious mistakes. You will discover that a well-designed presentation can really change the way you deliver your message for the better.

The Best FREE PowerPoint Program in 2020

With remote teaching becoming an everyday reality for many during this COVID-19 pandemic, teachers are increasingly assigning presentations for major grades.  But a free PowerPoint program is a fairy tale, and buying the program on a student’s income is not very realistic, even when the economy is not in one of the worst depressions since, well, the great depression. So, what is a student supposed to do?

Easy – ditch the conglomerate that is known as Microsoft, for a free alternative.  Instead of insisting on looking for a free powerpoint download, how about broadening your horizon to other presentation possibilities – specifically ones that are not only free, but would also allow you to create beter, more visually interactive presentations?

Today’s student is tech and internet-savvy; you have probably already, or are currently, taking an online class, use technology in the classroom, and are looking for an easy answer to your presentation software problem. The easy answer is a web-based presentation app. Think beyond PowerPoint!

Several of these web-based apps are free, which is totally cool for students. The very best of them, like Emaze, let you create your own free presentation, using one of their many templates and designs, or create your own from scratch, right on the website. You can save it to the cloud while you’re working on it, and access it on any mobile device from anywhere, at any time, too. So, if you’re at the coffee shop with your tablet and a few extra minutes, all you have to do is login, and all of your work is automatically there. No PowerPoint for free? No problem. If you’re at the school’s computer lab, it works exactly the same. Riding in a long car ride with your phone? You got it; finish up your free PowerPoint creation easily. And when it comes time to present it in front of the class, you don’t have to download your work onto anything to move it; you just login to the site, and you’re ready to present. No PowerPoint for free? No problem. Nothing’s easier than the cloud; really. With an app like Emaze, you can handle any presentation your Prof throws at you.

Once you’ve tried the Emaze app, you’ll never go back to the clunky, ball and chain of Microsoft’s program. In fact, you’ll wonder why you’ve been wasting all that time wishing for a free power point download. Get started now—for free!
