Each fall, The Nantucket Project gathers 500 visionaries and seekers to the island to discuss the boldest and most thought-provoking ideas of our time. For the third year in a row Graphic Matter worked with MassAv on a series of live presentations over this unique 4 day conference. This years presenters included Jennifer Garner, Glenn Beck, Dick Cavett as well as a series of very inspirational and controversial personalities.
Today, we expect our smartphones to be able to do it all, and they often do manage to fulfill our needs in situations that formerly would have required much heavier equipment. If you speak at conferences, present information at meetings, or otherwise use slideshow presentations, you can use your smartphone to enhance the presentation — or even, in some cases, use them in place of a laptop to output the slideshow.
Assuming you’ve created the presentation on your computer, the first step is to get the presentation file onto your phone and be able to open it. Depending on your mobile operating system, you can transfer the file by connecting the phone to your computer via USB, wirelessly over Bluetooth, e-mail it to yourself, or put it into a cloud storage location or on a web server where you can download it to the phone. With Android phones, most of which have microSD cards, you can also transfer the files from your computer to the card (if your computer has an SD card reader) and then onto the phone that way.
There are dozens of apps with which you can view PowerPoint or OpenOffice presentations on your smartphone, whether it’s an Android, iPhone, or Windows Phone. Of course, Windows Phone has Office Mobile (including PowerPoint Mobile) built in. For Android, you can use ThinkFree Office Mobile Viewer, which is a “lite” (and free) version of ThinkFree Office.
We just completed the new Reebok relaunch deck for Classics. The presentation highlighted new in store displays, imagery from line of shoes and branding calendars. The presentation was launched for the sales force on ipad tablets.
It seems PowerPoint decks are used everywhere so we feel it’s never a bad a idea to periodically review presentation “best practices”. Graphic Matter created this handy Power-Pointers guide for presentations which you can download here. We also found this good read: 5 Best Practices For Making Awesome PowerPoint Slides by Paul Petrone.
