ABOUT Dave

I'm an aviator turned college teacher.  Previously, I held positions involving frequent public speaking around the nation and abroad using Powerpoint.

During these speaking gigs I noticed the effectiveness of my roadshow presentations were often mixed and I started to consider ways to improve.

With my aviation background involving briefings and checklists, I realized I was often defaulting to the Powerpoint bullets as checklist items and cues, instead of fully mastering the presentation material.  I decided to go back to the drawing board and completely rethink the art of presentations and public speaking.

These galleries represent my new teaching format and presentation style a la Steve Jobs; emphasis on rehearsal using absolute minimal text and a reliance on powerful visuals to boost memory retention and interest for my students at two different universities.

Oh, and one more thing - I created all these slides the last few years using just the shapes tools in Powerpoint.  I was astonished at how much creativity you can pour into a Powerpoint slide!  I hope you find the galleries on this website pleasing, inspiring and helpful for generating your own presentations.

Good luck Powerpoint rangers!  Thanks for visiting!
