  • To view this presentation, first, turn up your volume and second, launch the self-running slide show.
  • Presentations are a powerful communication medium.
  • For more than 20 years, Duarte has developed presentations…
  • …to launch products,
  • …align employees,
  • …increase company value,
  • …and propel
  • …global causes.
  • Along the way we’ve discovered…
  • …five simple rules for creating world-changing presentations.
  • The first rule is: Treat your audience as king.
  • Your audience deserves to be treated like royalty. Design a presentation that meets their needs, not just yours.
  • Audiences want to know what you can do for them, why they should adopt your view, and the steps they need to follow to take action.
  • Give them those things in a clear, easily understandable way…
  • …and you will undoubtedly find favor with the king.
  • The second rule is: Spread ideas and move people.
  • Your audience didn’t show up to read your 60 page on screen dissertation.
  • They’re there to see you. To be inspired by your message…
  • …and witness the quality of your thought.
  • You are not giving your presentation to have another meeting. You are there to covey meaning.
  • So, consider including imagery that powerfully illustrates your point.
  • Sometimes moving images can inspire in a way that static slides cannot. A slow moving animation creates a sense of nostalgia.
  • A sequential build adds a sense of suspense.
  • And a thought-provoking video moves your audience in a way that can change not only minds, but hearts.
  • The next rule is: Help them see what you are saying.
  • Half of the people in your audience are verbal thinkers and the other half are visual.
  • Combining minimal text with meaningful visuals means that you’ll reach everyone.
  • Brainstorm graphics that will effectively communicate your message…
  • …and replace those words with a picture, chart or diagram. Then apply a consistent treatment to your graphics to give your whole presentation a unified look so that your audience is attracted to, rather than distracted from, your message.
  • Rule number 4: Practice design, not decoration.
  • As tempting as it is to fill your slides with stuff, often de-decorating is the best policy.
  • Any writer or designer will tell you that 90% of the creative process…
  • …is destructive.
  • Do you have a main point? Consider putting just one word on the slide by itself. Want them to remember a few items? Don’t show everything at once. Instead, show one item at a time. Have a picture that expresses your idea? Scale that picture so that it fills the slide. Have a quote that says it all? Let it say it and remove everything else.
  • The last rule is: Cultivate healthy relationships (with your slides and your audience)
  • Letting go is hard, we know.
  • But don’t hide behind your slides.
  • Breaking your dependence on your slides can do a world of good for your relationship with your audience.
  • Reduce the amount of text to a few key words. Put the rest into your notes.
  • And practice, practice, practice.
  • Thinking of your slides as digital scenery,
  • Allows you to connect eye-to-eye with your audience in a meaningful way.
  • So there are the rules.
  • But the question remains—Why go to all this trouble?
  • Why not do it the way you are used to?
  • The answer is simple. Because everyone else does it that way, too. You need to stand apart and be different.
  • When you apply these rules,
  • and keep the audience’s needs top of mind,
  • your presentation will not only hold their attention,
  • But also change the world. (Well, at least your part of the world.)
