How to make your Prezi presentations impactful

BY JOSHUA PETERSE

Why we love it
Joshua hits the nail on the head when he says we’re no longer designing slides – with more ways to incorporate ourselves and our content into our presentations, we’re now designing scenes. He shows six different ways to set a scene using Prezi Video, each as simple and effective as the last.

How to get someone to change their mind

BY JESSICA MARBLE

Why we love it
Jessica breaks down the complicated task of persuasion into three essential components – persistence, politeness, and patience. We love a little alliteration, but what really stands out are the GIFs and imagery. By incorporating visuals and animations consistently throughout, she adds life to her presentation that gives it momentum.

Presentation mistakes executives and managers make

BY BORIS HRISTOV

Why we love it
Many of us are new to hybrid and virtual working spaces, and Boris is cognizant of that. He shows exactly what your presentations should look like when meeting virtually is the norm. He uses a bright, consistent color scheme throughout his presentation, as well as subtle animations, including videos and GIFs, to add emphasis when he wants something to stand out. The effect is a really smooth presentation that’s cohesive from beginning to end.

DNA extraction

BY BONNIE ZIX

Why we love it
Bonnie’s video is a great example of a demonstration that educators should take note of. She supports her live demonstration with instructions on the screen below her, making it easy for students to take notes as they follow along.

How to use Prezi Video for product demos

BY RUSSELL ANDERSON-WILLIAMS

Why we love it
Russell demos a drink like you’ve never seen before, mixing practical effects and Prezi Video features to show the drink’s details in an exciting and memorable way. He does this in a way that never loses focus on the presenter, meaning the two most important parts of the product demo are at the forefront – the product and the presenter.

Go beyond quippy copy

BY ASHLEY FAUS

Why we love it
We couldn’t help but share this beautiful video by Ashley in this collection. She shows how to engage audiences on social media with quippy, thought-provoking copy. She does a great job presenting by staying on screen next to her content and uses her hands for emphasis and to establish a level of trust with her audience.

Practicing eighth note subdivisions

BY NUCLEO VEGA

Why we love it
Teachers are more effective when they’re on screen, but what makes Nucleo’s video so good is his time off screen. He’s on screen while he demonstrates the rhythm, and intentionally takes his lesson full screen when it’s time to let students practice and focus on their own rhythm.

Innovators and intrapreneurs: B2B marketing’s next big role

BY CARLA JOHNSON

Why we love it
Carla’s video is a great example of how to stand out in a conference. She uses a bright template and kicks off her presentation with a compelling story to grab the audience’s attention. She shows how to introduce exciting new innovations to your marketing plans by observing themes outside of work and distilling the best, most salient ideas into your strategy.

Start your presentation with a story

BY ELENA VALENTINE

Why we love it
At first glance, what makes Elena’s video stand out from the crowd is the sleek design and the crisp audio quality, but what makes us stick around is her storytelling, fittingly enough. Elena does a great job grabbing the audience's attention with a hook, then steadily guides her audience through the beginning, middle, and end of her presentation.

A 90 second video

BY ROBERT MORGAN

Why we love it
You don’t need a lot of time to make a great first impression. In just over 90 seconds, Robert introduces first year students at Washington University to his classes, communities, and one of his favorite spots on campus. We love his use of a simple template and imagery – the perfect balance for such a short format.
