I thought it was time to join the YouTube generation and post a video.
I narrated a PowerPoint presentation and converted it into a video. Although these tools have been around for a few years, I did this for two reasons.
First, I wanted to see how it was done. The ability to use social media technology and be able to present on different platforms is an important business skills. PowerPoint is a dominant platform in most businesses and a key management tool so I thought it would be good to see its potential. A narrated presentation can be sent to people who were unable to attend the meeting and to hear the presentation in their own time at their own pace.
I hope I have avoided the twin dangers of a powerpoint presenation. The first is reading the slides line by line. The second is having visuals that are so abstract that the presentation does not match the screen display.
The second reason I wanted to do it is that I wanted to share my enthusiasm for records management and its future. I made this presentation two years ago for a conference and I wanted to share it. I cover three areas, culture, technology, and legislation. I sketched out some developments over the next five and 10 years. I hope you find it of interest and use.
