Presentation FAQs: #5 Which presentation software should I use?

The assumption behind this question is that a better software will make you a better presenter. This statement is only partly true. Software has a role to play but beyond that it's you who has to deliver.

If you are using the latest Keynote or MS PowerPoint, you are good. Now stop bothering about which software is better and focus on your content, your message.

If you are using MS PowerPoint 2003, wake up and switch to 2007 or 2010. The new version make your job easier. You save a lot of time in making slides and it also has new features. Don't really worry about Prezi or other such cool sounding stuff. Your presentation will succeed because of what you say and how you say it. Your software has very little role to play.
