This sample chapter from Beyond Bullet Points: Using Microsoft PowerPoint to Create Presentations That Inform, Motivate, and Inspire introduces the "Beyond Bullet Points" approach to Powerpoint presentations. Inspired by the concepts of a Hollywood script, storyboard, and a combination of movie and live performance, this three-step approach can be implemented by anyone who uses Microsoft Office Powerpoint to communicate. The Beyond Bullet Points approach squarely emphasizes the importance of good storytelling, asserting the need to dramatically analyze and refine one's message before designing supporting imagery with any presentation tool. The results are visuals that integrate organically with content and delivery: engaging, innovative, and effective communication without "boring" bullet points.
