When we are due to present to our customer, to our colleagues, or maybe even to the board, we all turn to our old trusted friend PowerPoint. I suggest that our old trusted friend is not our old trusted friend but a lazy friend, and may I be so bold to say even a saboteur?
Originally designed for the Macintosh computer, the initial release was called ‘Presenter’. First seen in 1987 and then due to problems with trademarks, it was renamed to ‘PowerPoint’. It can be a fantastic tool. It’s just not THE tool, or the only tool.
