When it comes to presenting to an audience every speaker aims to captivate and inspire. Primarily this comes down to content and the speaker themselves, but the structure, design and format of your presentation plays an integral part in how engaging your presentation will be and, ultimately, how likely you are to convert your listeners into followers/customers/fans.
This is one of the main reasons Prezi’s user base has grown so rapidly in recent years and the company continues to flourish.
Originally designed by an internationally acclaimed architect as a personal solution to presenting his designs in 2009, which allowed him to give an overview of the building or floor plan and then zoom into individual rooms and features in more detail, the cloud based software solution has come a long way since its inception.
Between May 2012 and March 2013 the company doubled its volume of users to over 20 million people. These statistics highlight the rapid adoption of this product and suggests it is quickly becoming the preferred substitute to the standard Microsoft PowerPoint presentation.
So, what makes Prezi so special?
The Path of Discovery
Prezi’s unique zoomable format helps your presentations to stand out from the crowd by creating a more dynamic and involving experience for your audiences. Users can quickly communicate the ‘big picture’ as well as delving into more detail, providing the context for any piece of information and a map of your thought process or idea.
Access Anytime, Anywhere
Unlike PowerPoint you don’t need to purchase a software package in order to use Prezi. The solution is available for free online and can be accessed from any computer at any time. What’s more, users simply need to install the desktop version of Prezi on their computers in order to download Prezis to present offline.
Prezi provides a platform for team collaboration, acting as a virtual whiteboard onto which geographically disparate people can add their ideas.

The interface is highly intuitive and user-friendly, ensuring everyone gets the most out of the platform. Videos can be embedded into Prezis directly from YouTube and images simply uploaded and scaled to suit.
