PowerPoint Karaoke: TestBash World Edition - Hilary Weaver-Robb

You get on stage, start your presentation, and OH NO! You’ve never seen this slide deck before! What the heck is this topic? But the show must go on - so you present the mystery slide deck as if you’ve been practising with it for weeks! Ten slides, with little to no text, but lots of graphs, charts, images, and inferred meaning that you need to create a presentation out of!

Don’t worry, it’s not a nightmare - it’s PowerPoint Karaoke! And it’s not serious business either - these slide decks are meant to make you think on your feet and come up with a zany presentation. In fact, this may be the most fun you have presenting a talk you’ve ever had! We’ll get four volunteers from the audience to come on stage and present a mystery topic and a slide deck they’ve never seen before, for about four minutes each.

Are you brave enough to take on a mystery slide deck?

What You'll Learn

  • Practice your improvisation and presentation skills
  • Get the opportunity to be on the stage of a worldwide testing conference
  • Lots of fun!
