10 slideshows to help you create killer presentations in 2012

Most of the digital professionals I know need to create at least one slideshow a year, whether for an internal meeting, a client briefing or a conference talk.

All too often I see slideshows that contain great content and ideas, but sometimes the slides are cluttered and confusing, or worse, boring. 

Thankfully help is at hand, to enable you to create wonderful slides in 2012.

Five Twitter slideshows you need to see

Slideshare is one of the more useful startups launched in the past few years, as it means you can view slideshows without having to attend events. It is Youtube for Keynote and Powerpoint.

I’ve just viewed a compelling / amusing 26-slide presentation on ‘Twitter party theory’ by Poke creative director Iain Tait, and thought I’d share it with you, along with four others that I’ve enjoyed recently. They include a comprehensive overview by Ogilvy PR, and a great slideshow by Adam Schoenfeld that takes a detailed look at running contests on Twitter.
