Agenda slides are typically uninteresting, and there's never enough space to describe each agenda item in detail. Until now! Here's an animated agenda slide that was developed using a framework from the TI012 Roll Out series (view the flash to see it in action). The topic descriptions appear each time a new time is rolled out.
Notice how the roll-out segments appear. This is an easy-enough layout technique that is described in this FAQ. This layout technique can also be used on other slides, so it's worth reviewing and mastering.
This hard-working agenda slide is particularly useful when presenting to large audiences. The agenda topic, presenter, and topic description are large enough to read, which is not always possible when agendas are set up as tables.
