Let’s face it, PowerPoint and Keynote presentation slides are so old fashioned. They are linear and can be incredibly boring (even with visuals).

I first learned about Prezi from Shawn Tuma. He did several Prezi Presentations for lawyers I coach and then he and I did a Prezi Presentation Simple Ways to Use Social Media to Build your Practice for the Legal Marketing Association.

I became a believer that Prezi is a better presentation tool. So, I started making presentations Joyce created for me using it. My first was in April for the ABA Forum on the Construction Industry. The title of the presentation was Professionalism: Old Tool and New Tools.

My second presentation using Prezi was for the FDCC/IADC Joint Law Firm Management Conference. The title of the presentation was Light My Fire: It’s NOT All About Money, It’s About Passion, Purpose and Fulfillment.

Prezi is not for everyone. My co-presenter at the ABA Forum didn’t want his slides in Prezi. He liked the old fashioned PowerPoint slides with bullet points and no visuals.

Want to learn to create Prezi slides? Shawn Tuma learned so I thought I would give it a try. My first effort is an on-line course presented by Lynda.com. If somehow an old toad like me can learn, then I bet you can also.
