Today I was asked by my sister for an example of a great Prezi presentation so she could share it with her high school English class.
For those that don't know, Prezi is a presentation software that enables more zooming in and out - basically a different approach to Powerpoint.
I sent my sister to this great Prezi presentation from our recent NextGen+ event entitled "Under 5: How we Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bureaucracy" from Michael Lawyer and Anthony Soriano of HUD Under 5.
So here's my 4 tips of what makes this Prezi great;
1) Story Arc - the beauty of Prezi is that it's a great way to tell a story in pieces. I love how the beginning we are transitioning across dates in times related to HUD. Prezi is great with telling linear time stamped stories.
2) Design - Simply it's beautiful. The background yellow pops, the font is great, the images are great. Lots of great images and typography throughout. I see too many people keep a super simple Prezi - no color, simple font. Even with a newer software, you need to add pizazz still.
3) Clear calls to action - After setting up the story of HUD Under 5, the Prezi gets into a quick 3 steps you can do to
create a young professional group in your agency. Tons of tactical and practical advice with clear actionable steps.
4) Amazing close -What a close. It leaves with an inspiring quote from Teddy Roosevelt that incorporates the entire presentation in the image & ties in Michael Lawyer (presenter)'s signature bow tie. Leaves you inspired.
