Send us the Worst PowerPoint Slide You’ve Ever Seen for a Chance to Win an InFocus Projector!
At InFocus, we offer high-quality visual display technology for a variety of interactive and collaborative activities. However, we can’t help but notice that our technology is used to deliver PowerPoint presentations that either make you want to fall asleep or jump out the window. To help improve this sorry state of affairs, we want to expose the worst of the worst—because knowing what NOT to do is half the battle.
Here’s the plan:
Send us the worst PowerPoint slide you’ve ever seen or created yourself (we won’t name names unless you really want the recognition). Once you submit your slide, we’ll post the worst slides as examples of “what not to do” here in the InFocus Labs.
To enter, follow @InFocusCorp on Twitter and send us an example of your worst PowerPoint slide via any Twitter photo application (Twitpic, etc.) For example, take a screen shot of the slide and upload it to Twitter. Then tell us in 140 characters or less why this is the worst PowerPoint slide you’ve ever seen or created.
Over the next three weeks, we’ll compile all the terrible slides and randomly select three winners who will win a variety of prizes including an IN1501 short throw portable projector. We will also provide tips and tricks from PowerPoint experts to help improve the world’s presentations and PowerPoint design skills. Read the rules and regulations below if you want to participate.
Good luck! We’re cringing with excitement.
