We’ve all been there… The lights are low. The projector shines brightly at the front of the hotel ballroom or conference room. It’s your 6th presentation of the day and the third one since lunch where the conference presenter squints to read word-for-word off the screen. “Sorry, this one is hard to read,” is the excuse often shared- as if that’s any consolation to the audience members who checked out 30 seconds into the session.

Whether you’re attending a conference, strategic off-site, workshop, or summit, you’re bound to encounter at least a few presentations that seem to violate every rule in the book.

Here at Haiku Deck, we aim to help presentation authors abide by presentation best practices. If you’re reading this post, you’re already ahead of the game. But what’s a great presenter to do when trapped in the audience for a jargon-filled, egregiously animated, excessively bullet pointed, tiny-fonted presentation from hell?

We’ve got the perfect solution for you! Download your Bad Presentation Bingo cards, grab a few friends,, and play Haiku Deck’s Bad Presentation Bingo! When the session ends, the winner has to gently suggest to the presenter that they ought to try Haiku Deck for their next presentation.
