Preparing a presentation can often leave you with a mind as empty as flat football. And when this happens, you need a little source of inspiration.
Whenever this happens to me, the first place I visit is Slideshare.net This is a great place to go for amazing inspiration from presentations. You can search presentations with similar themes to the one you are doing, as well as just indulge in the pleasure of seeing amazing creativity.
Another great place to visit is iStockphoto.com. Here you can browse through thousands of stock images. Creating an account is free, and the benefit of actually having an account is that you will receive a weekly free image. You can use these images to begin creating a stock photo folder on your computer so that you have them to hand whenever you need them.
Here’s an example of a stock photo folder. This I have on my desktop computer, as that is where I usually create most of my presentations.
Other sources of inspiration can come from just taking a walk around your local park. Taking your camera with you will give you the opportunity to take some pictures for your stock photo file. I have always found that when I get a little creative block, just by getting out for some light exercise can get my creative juices boiling again.
So, whenever you are need of a little inspiration, I hope you will remember, that there are thousands of resources out there.
