GPT Bullet Points Transcript

Bullet points are the foundation of your presentation.

While slide titles are your catchy headlines, it is the hard-working bullet points that do all the heavy lifting to best communicate your core ideas on each slide.

So how do you make them better? Having a live copy editor by your side would be outstanding!

But who can afford a dedicated speech writer?

So instead, turn powerful chatbots into your digital AI copy editor.

Hi, this is Les from Power Up Training, and I will teach you how to use OpenAI’s ChatGPT as your digital bullet point editor to brainstorm new phrasings.

Let’s power up with a quick example to see how it works and then dig deeper.

Our first slide is a mess with too many words and inconsistent bullet lines with a mishmash of formatting.

So here is our quick fix.

I am already logged into OpenAi.com and I will put in our first prompt at the bottom of the page.

“Create a new single slide presentation called “Your Laptops are being Replaced” using the following bullet points:”

Pay close attention to the specificness of this prompt. I am say what I am building, a single slide, not a letter or a script to a movie, a single slide.  And then I provide the context with a leading title and then, I  go back and grab those four bullet points from my PowerPoint slide and paste them into the GPT prompt box and hit enter.

Our Chatbot gets to work to transform these bullet points.

And yes, we do get a rewrite of our original bullet points.

Maybe not all for the better.

Let’s look more closely.

First off, it fixed the original unparalleled constructed bullet lines  . . .  on that slide, some lines start with an introductory phase and a colon, like Good New COLON or Could be a hardship COLIN . . . while second line starts off with a pronoun of YOU and the third uses a comma instead of a colon. Also there is a mixture of short lines and long lines of text.

The original slide is ruined just from the grammatical pattern construct.

Look at what GPT did. It fixed the sentence Parallel structure by breaking out leading bullet point headers and then adding sub-bullet points.

Furthermore. GPT was super clever in identifying the last line’s doubling up of two ideas, and breaking them into two distinct sub-bullet points.

However, the overall tone of the slide is a bit too casual, (“good news” and “remember this”) so let’s instruct Chat GPT to make it more professional, and GPT will transform the collection of bullets into a more formal set of points that are clearly explained.

But this added clarity makes each bullet point way too verbose; bullet points should be snippets of sentences on the slide page. Once again, this should not be worded as a memo but talking points in a presentation.

So I am just going to issue a new GPT prompt of “use fewer words”

Pay attention to the key feature of ChatGPT . . .it truly is a chat session where you can use conversational interactions . . . chats . . to modify your results until you get exactly what you desire.

Issue a command prompt, review the results, ask for modifications and repeat

And now this is great. A huge improvement over our original slide.

Look at the end results that I have moved GPT’s suggestions back into PowerPoint and compare.

Yes, these ideas are now just snippets. . .remember we are writing for a slide presentation; not a standalone dissertation.  While presenting these slides, you would then fill in the details. It is a partnership of key concepts and presentation storytelling.

That is the cornerstone of great slide presentations.

Now let’s see how to build higher quality results with a new example; one that is not so bad as the first scenario; but still, it has issues . . .once again, it has too many words per line and the construct of each line is inconsistent.

But before we do the bullet point makeover;  here is a valuable ChatGPT pro tip.

When revamping a new slide with a ChatGPT makeover, always start with a NEW CHAT command, otherwise, it will remember the earlier prompt request for setting the tone or other parameters..  Starting from scratch with a new CHAT session will let you shape the results, and not get tainted by an earlier unrelated chat session.

Okay, Lets fix this second slide.

I will paste in this prompt

“Fix this presentation slide bullet points and keep on one slide”

and then add the bullet points from my slide.

Right off the bat these results are better.

Why are these results better without having to ask follow up prompts?

This example has a higher-quality starting point.  Our first example went from a messy slide that was not focused to slightly better after the first GPT fix; but this time, we went from starting with a respectably GOOD slide, and GPT made it a VERY GOOD slide.

While we can’t give GPT credit for following my first rule of limiting bullet points to six per page because that is the number of bullet points we fed into GPT, but look at the next rule of avoiding too many words.  Since the slide started with minimal words, GPT also attempted to maintain the brevity. Without any prompting from me.

Where GPT really starts to shine is fixing the original slide’s starting words of nouns, verbs, adverbs, pronouns and instead making each line start with a VERB.  That is outstanding word construction. Four stars for that move.

Maybe make that five stars as GPT did not use passive tense verbs but each line started with active verbs: Limit, Keep, Start, Avoid, Use and Capture.  Active verbs are an excellent strategy when communicating.

Furthermore, our AI robot simplified and clarified our original last two lines to make them more clear. Exactly what you would expect from a human copy editor.

At first glance, this GPT makeover did not seem like much, but now you should understand that GPT can do some sophisticated and subtle editing that may have escaped your attention.

But even with a solid set of bullet points on our first try, we can add some extra flair by giving the command of “make the bullet points more dynamic.”

And here we move from sentence constriction to more persuasive language. GPT went from starting each line with an “active” verb and ratcheted it up to ACTION VERBS. Adding excitement.

But a word of warning; just cause it looks good on the screen, you have to be comfortable delivering the text.  If you were to stand in front of your coworker, would they be confused with your new fancy persona when you say:

> Ignite interest with action verbs at each point’s start


> Banish passive voice from your presentation

If that is not your style, then do edit the text once you get close to match your own voice.

And GPT is wordsmithing is not perfect as some language may still sound stilted like the “action verbs at each point’s start”. . . . maybe a better rewrite would be:

  • Ignite interest by starting lines with action verbs

Remember, this is a collaboration, but in the end, you decide what works and what to edit.

Let’s tackle another slide with bullet issues.  This slide gets a bit irritable talking about unhappiness with team members; complaints about unfairly shared workloads and lack of support plus struggles with team collaboration.

Tone is as important as grammar and spelling; and this slide might be construed as just a complaining troublemaker based on the tone of the message.

Lets start with a simple “FIX THIS SLIDE”

And the results . . . a much more professional tone.

Example going from “Zoom Virtual Meetings Stink” to “Virtual meeting effectiveness: Dissatisfaction with Zoom for virtual meetings.”

However, depending on your audience, maybe the original ZOOM STINKS is more expressive.

If you want to know about deeper sculpting the tone of a presentation, check out my tutorial [point left and up] “ChatGPT Slide Title Makeover For Better Presentations” where I teach how to tailor the message for the audience.

Nevertheless, the GPT version does standardize on a more consistent, professional collection of bullet points, but it did nothing about the organization of the actual bullet points . . it just rewrote the lines one by one.

And to be honest, the original slide was chaotic with no structure to the list.

Let’s give ChatGPT a chance to reimagine the slide and bring some order with “organized these into categories”

Now GPT is more than just copy editing, it is doing its own version of “robot thinking” and rearranging similar bullet points together.

However, the level of “thinking” may fall short.

Are these two bullet points under “Attendance and Health” really related and worthy of grouping together?

Or just a word salad of two non-related topics stuck together and made bold?

GPT is a roll of the dice.  I have seen it do some amazing groupings when I ask for help on organization, but I choose this example to demonstrate that you must always use your own superior intellect to edit and take GPT’s suggestions to make them better.

But before I re-edit this slide, let’s make the slide more forceful and with fewer words.

And there . . . it is much different from the original; it is shorter and to the point.  And it does bring consistency to the language, but in my opinion, it is not ready for prime time.

You must be the thinking person of the team (since you are the only real person participating) and take the best of GPT’s ideas and then make them your own.

Here is my re-edited slide.

I loved GPT’s idea of organizing the list but not its recommended groupings.  So I reimagined the slide, and borrowed some of GPT’s phrases to create this slide.

This edited slide improves GPT’s ideas and are heads and shoulders better than the original slide. Together GPT and me are awesome.

REMEMBER this is a collaboration effort and you are still the superior thinking machine. ChatGPT is NOT TAKING YOUR JOB, (laugh) as long as you are smarter! So don’t be lazy and just copy the results.

Let’s do one more example, but this time work with a more open-ended set of questions.

I never use GPT to build a slide deck with no controls . . . if you think you can start with a blank sheet and tell CHATP GPT to go . . .it will take you down some strange paths that could lead you completely astray or just plain wrong.

Trust me, PowerPoint presentations are very visible, and if you recklessly take GPT results without thinking, you could be unmasked as a professional fraud and potentially called out in a meeting; and that job embarrassment will follow you around for a very long, long time.

So keep GPT under your control.

I always provide some context, even when asking for help.  Here is an example of an “open-ended question of “what is missing from this PowerPoint slide called “project status?

While I am asking for more ideas, it is grounded to a specific topic and question.

The AI Robot understands from my prompt that I trying to create a project status slide and the robot will inspects its large language database of other Project Status Reports and recommend what I should  consider of topics to add.

Basically it is expanding the list with additional ideas often found in typical status reports.

And of course, complete with corporate speak words; but still, relevant ideas.

Ones I could pick and choose to add to my original bullet point slide.  While GPT is just pulling its ideas from thousands (or millions) of previous text slides, it has done the heavy lifting to give me more brainstorming ideas.

And this is central to this training. Chat GPT is not some magic oracle; but a collaborative tool to ignite your ideas to be better.

Use your brainpower, with the chatbot’s brainstorming ideas to create awesome bullet points in both grammar construct and in content.
