Imagine There’s No PowerPoint

Imagine there's no PowerPoint
It's easy if you try
No screens before us
No piles of printed slides
Imagine all the people focusing on you

Imagine there's no clip art
It isn't hard to do
Nothing clichéd or stupid
No dumb cartoons
Imagine all the people focusing on you

You, you may say
I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And conferences will be more fun

Imagine no bullets
I wonder if you could
No dissolves or fly-ins
Just stories, from the heart, and good
Imagine all the people focusing on you

You, you may say
I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And conferences will be more fun

(with apologies to John Lennon)

  1. I love it!
    However, I prefer “Imagine there’s no Slidware”. That includes also other programs (not only PPT) and it fits even better with the music 😉
    Thank you for make us smile.

  2. Thanks to Andrew, Roger, and Monique for the fun comments, and Monique — if you can sing, maybe we can strike a deal:-)

  3. Wow Dr. Nick- No Power Point, after reading this poem the world will get powerful to give presentations.
    Thanks Coach Nick. Have a great Power Day.
    Yeppeee,
    Adil

  4. Nick, I am just seeing this. Please add me to the choir. This could prove to be the highest and best use of all my years of opera training! Brilliant!
