On my recent trip to Ireland I became fascinated with the posters and billboards, as well as the scenery and nature. and this got me thinking. How can we improve our slide design and thinking when it comes to presenting.
One of the best ways to get inspiration for designing our slides it to just look around our everyday environment. Unfortunately, this can become a bit boring, particularly when our local environment does not change very much.
However, most people are fortunate enough to travel, whether that is a weekend away with our friends or family, or if you are very fortunate you may have to opportunity to travel abroad. Opportunities to travel to other countries can give you bundles of chances to gain inspiration for your next presentation.
Recently, I have been doing an environmentally friendly presentation course with a large company here in Korea. On my trip last week I had a stop in Amsterdam and I noticed that there where hundreds of wind turbines (see picture below) This gave me the opportunity to take some pictures that I can use in my slides later this week.
So whenever you travel, wherever you travel, always carry a camera with you and seek out opportunities to improve the way you design your slides and your ideas.
