Presenting Without Slides, Learn Why It Can Be the Best Presentation Design Solution – Part 14

Written by Matteo Cassese

In this lesson we ask ourselves a question. Whenever we are asked to do a presentation, do we default to creating a slide deck? Because there is a case to be made for going without slides. If we don’t have any slides behind us or next to us, all the focus will be on us; and if we don’t have slides, then our audience will not be distracted by any visual. At the same time, we will benefit from the same strong structure that we had all along with Presentation Hero, and all the work that we are doing is still there because all our slides will become talking points.

There is a case to be made also for going with slides actually, because slides can be very powerful in terms of visuals; imagine how evocative a photo like this can be. Some audiences also expect us to come with a slideshow prepared and they will think that we haven’t done our job if we don’t present with a slideshow.

And let’s face it, slides can boost our confidence, even though we shouldn’t use them as a crutch. So, consider and retain the possibility of going slideless.

Summary:

  • Evaluate the opportunity each time, and in some cases go without slides.
