  • En Project-Presentation we’re trying to change the world 2
  • Presentations aren’t the most important thing, but they are important 3
  • Imagine when you speak 4
  • People listen 5
  • And follow 6
  • You could spread your message, and change your world 7
  • I was born in USA, came to Spain at age 5 and traveled to Japan 8
  • I was born in USA, came to Spain at age 5 and traveled to Japan 9

  • I was born in USA, came to Spain at age 5 and traveled to Japan 11
  • I was born in USA, came to Spain at age 5 and traveled to Japan 12
  • But I looked like this 13
  • I had the pleasure of being Garr’s student. Presentation guru and great mentor 14
  • Author of Presentation Zen, which inspires today’s talk 15
  • 16
  • Why is it important? 17
  • People like Seth Godin 18
  • Or Guy Kawasaki, agree that presentations today impede communication in stead of aiding it. 19
  • These people see more than 10 presentations a day. You should listen to what they say (and follow their blogs). They are the type of people you will be selling your ideas and dreams to. 20
  • But what is a Zen Presentation? 21
  • Why Zen? 22
  • It doesn’t mean you need to meditate before your prez 23
  • Garr relates 3 principle of Zen to Presentations. Restraint, simplicity and Naturalness. I want to relate them to the 3 parts of presentations: Preparation, design and Delivery Restraint in preparation Simplicity in design Naturalness in delivery 24

  • But how? 26
  • Travelling 27
  • 28
  • Follow me on a journey. The journey of making a presentation 29
  • As in any journey we have a point of origin 30
  • A destination 31
  • And many ways to get there. But this time the shortest way is not the best one 32
  • We could take shortcuts 33
  • But they will only bring you here 34
  • Preparing our trip requires us to decide our destination, what message we want to convey. 35
  • Get away from the computer 36
  • Take a notebook and a pencil to write down everything that comes to mind 37
  • Don’t be afraid to have a lot of ideas 38
  • Learn that destruction is part of the process of creation 39
  • Don’t be satisfied with the first idea that comes to mind. Push your ideas further and then reduce them to their core. Image from the book Slide:ology by Nancy Duarte 40
  • Take those reduced ideas and put them on post-its to create the map of your journey. If an idea doesn’t fit on a post-it it’s too complex. You need to make it simpler. Image from the book Slide:ology by Nancy Duarte 41
  • Organize your topics like stops on the road 42
  • Decide how you will go there. Power Point 43
  • Keynote 44
  • Flash 45
  • 46
  • 47
  • When we tell our friends about our stop along the way Image from the book Slide:ology by Nancy Duarte 48
  • We use images. They are more powerful 49
  • 50
  • 51
  • 52
  • Images you choose because they communicate an emotion to you. Don’t constraint it to the rules. 53
  • Use your image as the background and have your text on top 54
  • Everyday image 55
  • cropped 56
  • Use the rule of thirds 57
  • 80% of people prefer this image 58
  • Choose your colors wisely 59
  • If you need help you can use online resources like Kuler 60
  • Use a power color! 61
  • Design your slide thinking about the person at the back of the room 62
  • This style helps you convey an idea. If you need to give out more info put it in a handout. 63
  • Don’t use ugly 3D graphs 64
  • Use simple graphs that can be understood right away 65
  • Example of a way to show big amounts of data. Convey emotion! Be passionate about your journey! 66
  • Naturalness in delivery through rehearsing 67
  • In the shower 68
  • In the car 69
  • In the elevator 70
  • Walking the dog 71
  • Shopping with your girlfriend 72
  • Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Connect with the audience 73
  • Tell your story, your way 74
  • Ex: Dylan Moran comes out on stage drinking and smoking. 75
  • Enjoy. This is your destination, the whole trip was to arrive to this point. Don’t be afraid to enjoy the moment 76
  • Review: Restraint in preparation: keep only the essential. Only make the necessary stops on your way Simplicity in design: Practice design, not decoration. Naturalness in delivery: Enjoy the moment 77
  • 78
  • Become a designer and a writer 79
  • Mind the words you use 80
  • Some words are more powerful than others 81
  • Repetition is essential for people to process your message 82
  • Review: Restraint in preparation: keep only the essential. Only make the necessary stops on your way Simplicity in design: Practice design, not decoration. Naturalness in delivery: Enjoy the moment 83
  • 84
  • People will concentrate on the mistake, not on the message 85
