33 percent of those surveyed said they dread creating PowerPoint presentations, while 29 percent dread sitting through them.
The PowerPoint presentation has become such a reviled part of business meetings today that a large percentage of presentation audiences would rather give up sex, do their taxes or even go to the dentist to get out of watching one. According to a survey of over 1,000 working adults conducted by IBOPE Zogby International on behalf of SlideRocket, PowerPoint presentations induce the cold sweats in both those who must create them AND those who have to sit through them. Granted, SlideRocket is trying to usurp PowerPoint as a way to drive meeting presentations, but that doesn't change the fact that some people would do anything to get out of watching a crummy slide show. What would you give up in exchange for taking a pass on the next PowerPoint preso?
