I love Prezi. A Web-based program and service to create interactive, engaging presentations. I give many presentations a year and enjoy using visuals. When you are trying to explain the terroir of a wine region or put a face with a name, words never do justice. Often I may have several dozen slides for one presentation and your audience can feel the "Death by PowerPoint". Especially with annoying animations for every. single. click....swoosh.
I heard about Prezi a few years ago and now use it as much as I can. It is easy to learn, no experience required. One giant canvas where you can drag drop images, media and text wherever you want. iPad and iPhone have apps for it so you can view and edit. There is a small monthly fee if you want to make your presentations private and get a large storage space, otherwise free for the Public.
This Prezi I created is a short introduction to several of our Kermit Lynch producers. As you click though, you can zoom in or move the entire canvas, very cool. Most of the blanks I fill in verbally so just imagine. Check it out and let me know if you like it. I hope you do.
