A few weeks ago at Blawgthink, I met David Swanner, who blogs at  South Carolina Trial Law Blog.  David was giving out copies of his Winning With Powerpoint CD that you can get from him through his blog as described here.   From David’s perspective, the payment is possible referrals, but more importantly, an opportunity to help improve litigation practice.

It’s taken me a while to put up this post because I actually wanted to take a look at the CD.  David has put the presentations together in a professional and organized manner.  As for the quality of the examples, some presentations are quite good while others don’t seem that they’d be very effective with a jury.  But you can learn from the good and the bad about what to do and what not to do.  Also, seeing some of the poorer quality stuff made me a little less intimidated since I’m still trying to improve my own power point presentation skills.  Anyway, go over to David’s site and learn more about him and his CD and maybe you’ll come up with a marketing idea that’s similarly cool.

    Carolyn,
    Thanks for the plug. I think you’re right, you can learn from *all* of the examples, even if it’s something you would do different.
    I put nearly every example that was sent in by people on the disk. Next year, I’ll trim back and organize it a bit more.
    The main reason that I put the disk together though was that there wasn’t one out there. If you wanted real world examples, there was nothing out there.
    I could have sold the disk, but there’s some graphic pictures on there and it just didn’t geel right. I much prefer ‘spreading the gospel’ and helping others use technology.
