Are you using these interactive PowerPoint features to boost engagement?

Interactive PowerPoint features might not seem essential, but they can increase the level of engagement from your audience.

If using interactive PowerPoint captures attention, then 100% it’s worth adding to your bag of tricks.

With the trend to use video meetings set to continue, there’s no reason to encourage yet more Zoom fatigue. It’s tempting for viewers to do other things whilst in meetings – checking emails, scrolling news feeds, checking LinkedIn (me).

So here are two videos that show methods we recommend. Both can keep your audience paying attention AND feeling more engaged:

Interactive PowerPoint menu options

Not only does an interactive menu make your navigation clear, it also means you can jump around and present only certain sections or certain pages. This allows a more spontaneous presentation flow. Your delivery won’t get flat, and you can make it bespoke to your audience’s interests on the fly.

Display your case studies in PowerPoint

Both of the menus for cases studies above are interactive. It should be obvious by now that this allows you to click on whichever case study is relevant to your audience. Indeed, you can even ask the audience to pick. This is ideal for engagement.

And you can send the PPT via email for someone to view on their own monitor and make their own choices. We like this side of interactivity as it puts the customer first.

Also, whichever menu you prefer for your case studies, they both show your audience that you have many more (instead of pre-loading your deck with a small selection you chose earlier). Showing more – in a list or as logos – is a fun way to name drop clients without saying a word!

We hope these 2 videos give you some inspiration. Please share with a friend or colleague if it might help them too!
We have more Interactive PowerPoint examples on our vimeo page.

Good luck with your next interactive PowerPoint experience 🙂
