What is the cost of a BAD PowerPoint Presentation?

In this infographic by “PresenationBunndle.com”, they take the serious matter of “bad presentations” into their own hands, by presenting this infographic titled: What is the cost of a BAD PowerPoint Presentation? In this graphic, they state that on average the total salaries lost due to “bad presentations”  is an estimated $12, 600 . However, when they break down the statistics of Microsoft’s daily PowerPoint presentations, the information is simply astonishing. According to the graphic, Microsoft loses an average of a billion a day due to bad presentations. That math is simply to high to ignore. The company also lists common errors that occur during presentations such as:  overloading text, reading from papers, hard to see colors, and overwhelming graphs. They then spend the last half of the graphic outlining basic tips that every individual MUST be aware of, when attempting to create a PowerPoint.  The company that made the infographic is a site that has pre-designed professional PowerPoint templates, that businesses can use to create their presentations for a small fee. I feel that if businesses want to continue to utilize PowerPoint’s in their meetings, they should hold workshops and training sessions to maximize the actual profitability of this much established technology.

Friends Don’t Let Friends Use PowerPoint

Given the fact that PowerPoint’s are often a “hit or miss”, a Youtuber by the name of “ChuckJPC”, has created a satirical video commenting on the “usefulness” of PowerPoint presentations. The video basically discusses the common uses of PowerPoint’s in business meetings, outlining their flaws and reasons why he feels they’re useless in such settings. It is an interesting perspective to the debate on whether this now “established” technology is still the most useful to big and small businesses alike. The narrator provides a different perspective on the subject, forcing listeners to think critically about the way they utilize the PowerPoint in their own lives.

Employee Loyaltly Is At a Three-Year Low and Most Empolyers are Unaware of This

In continuing on my mission of discovering all aspects of business communications, I have decided to take a more “internal” approach this post. Within the HR or internal strategic management side of communications, there is a wealth of knowledge to delve into, but not enough room in the post. Therefore, I am going to touch on an aspect, presented in this lovely infographic, which is not talked about often. In this graphic the website “GlobalThinking HR Communications” presents information about the declining employee-employer relationship that is currently plaguing small and big business alike. Not only do they say that employees are no longer loyal to their respective employers, but that employees are also losing their confidence in their employers. While, some business owners may have differing opinions on loyalty, I personally feel it is one of the most important components needed to conduct business. According to this graphic, employee benefits are correlated to employee loyalty. More importantly, employees want to have great benefits that are clearly communicated to them. When I reflect on my own personal career goals, I too also feel great benefits are a sign of success in ones “career journey”. We all aim for them, but how many of us really get those “idealized”, great benefits we all dream about? Overall, after analyzing  and reflecting on this infographic, I realized I’m “one of those” employees that see the correlation in workplace benefits and loyalty. Not only does it assert the employers credibility, but also shows how loyal they are to their employees. This I cannot disagree with.
