Book Description

Prezi is a tool for delivering presentations in a linear or non-linear format. This cloud-based software enables users to structure presentations on an infinite canvas in a way that is more engaging and visually stimulating to the audience.

This book covers all of the technical elements of the software, whilst also looking at the practicalities of using Prezi in a business environment. It teaches the reader how to think for Prezi, and approach their design in the best way. This is an essential resource for people who want to use Prezi seriously. Apart from covering best practices for inserting images, sound, and video, this book also covers topics for business users such as collaborating and sharing Prezis online, using Prezi at a meeting to brainstorm with overseas colleagues, and how to “Prezify” PowerPoint or Keynote slides. This book will escalate you from Prezi user to Prezi master with ease.
