I have been attempting to get my clients to use examples or stories. They frequently just describe what happened in a given situation. This does not have the same power as creating a dialogue. For example, Sarah is trying to convince department managers to stop using roaming plans. To give her discussion of cell phone charges more impact, here is what she can say.

Making PowerPoint interactive is to make your slides do what you want, allowing yourselves to go from slide to slide almost like going from one room to another in your home -- and setting your slides in a way that allows you to work better -- again, that's akin to arranging the furniture in your home so as to make movement and work easier. Even if you step out of the comfort of your home, you can make your life more gratifying by discovering streets that are not too crowded with traffic so that you can get to your office faster, and with less stress! In the world of slides, those streets are the shortcuts you press to quickly navigate from one point in your presentation to another – and back.
