Prezi is a piece of software designed to give presentations that is flash-based and gives users an alternative to the traditional PowerPoint presentation. Prezi was officially established in 2009 and their presentation software and its usage are rising worldwide.
Prezi presentations are different to PowerPoint presentations for 2 main reasons. Firstly, the fact Prezi is flash-based means your presentations can be a lot more visually appealing, dynamic and interactive than PowerPoint presentations. This allows you to embed things such as videos and images that normally would take an advanced flash developer and a significant amount of time to do.
Secondly, Prezi presentations are a lot more fluid than PowerPoint presentations. There is no set order of slides, instead you work on a virtual ‘canvas’ and zoom in on the sections that are relevant at any point.
The key advantage of using Prezi presentations is the ability you will have to differentiate yourself. It is no secret that the vast majority of people in the business world favor PowerPoint presentations. This structured format is the best thing for some subjects, however the fluidity of a Prezi presentation as well as the ability to embed video, images and audio will allow you to impress and stand out from the crowd. Engagement is what you want in a presentation and engagement is what Prezi specializes in.
