2 Slides That are Ruining Your Damn PowerPoint Presentation

Some people say that you shouldn’t have more than 10 slides in your PowerPoint presentation. And as you probably know it’s not that easy to fit within these boundaries, but there are couple of things that will help you to achieve this goal, so let me give you some PowerPoint presentation tips.

You can start with checking if some of the valuable space in your presentation is not being occupied by these two trolls (oops… I mean slides).

1. “Agenda / Presentation Plan” slide
2. “Thank You For Your Attention” slide

These are usually the second and the last slide in your PowerPoint presentation.

Why should you avoid them? Not only because they take these two valuable spots in your 10-slide-presentation, but what’s more important – they can completely RUIN your whole presentation (especially the first one – the agenda). Oh, one additional tip – start your presentation with punch.

myBrainshark Makes Your PowerPoint a Big Star on YouTube

Brainshark and myBrainshark presentations can be viewed online at any time and from anywhere in the world by your customers, your sales staff, HR professionals for training purposes, or anyone else who can benefit from self-guided presentations. Better yet, the multimedia presentations can also be viewed on mobile devices including smartphones and iPads, and combine PowerPoint slides, documents, photos, background music and voice narration that can be added–via phone or computer microphone–from a continent away.

With yesterday’s announcement, myBrainshark users who have a YouTube account can upload PowerPoint decks to myBrainshark and add their voice, and then seamlessly upload the resulting presentations as video files to YouTube–with titles, descriptions and tags intact. Then it’s just a matter of publishing a link to the audience you have targeted–employees, sales prospects, customers, partners and all those who influence your business–enabling them to experience your content at their convenience, whenever and wherever they want. In addition to viewing the YouTube video, your audience can still watch the multimedia presentation on myBrainshark too.

Like everything else, there are several downsides, but they are minor. For one thing, you must abide by YouTube’s 15-minute rule, which means your file can run no longer than 15 minutes if you’re posting it on YouTube. But that problem is solved by the fact that, when uploaded on Brainshark.com, the ocean’s the limit on the length of your presentation.


Brainshark Inc. has just opened up an ocean of access to its on-demand multimedia customers by introducing a new feature that enables businesses and entrepreneurs to share their PowerPoint presentations on YouTube–at no cost to the participating company.

Started 10 years ago, Brainshark provides a web-based Software as a Service platform that allows your business to create and share on-demand, multimedia content, and access deep metrics associated with it. The Massachusetts-based company has built a polished online platform that walks you though converting PowerPoint slides–as well as other materials such as PDF files–into powerful voice-enriched Flash presentations that are suitable for YouTube, your own website or company blog, and even e-mail marketing campaigns. A year ago this month, Brainshark launched myBrainshark–a free version of its software well-suited to entrepreneurs and small business users.
