Transcript

  • 1. HOW TO MAKE AN AWARD-WINNING PRESENTATION
    AKA ONE THAT DOESN’T SUCK
  • 2. DON’T USE TONS OF TEXT
    This is a typical presentation
    And it sucks.
    This bullet is already too much text
    But, we should add even more.
    No need to prepare for slides like this
    I’ll just show everyone that I can read.
    The text does the talking here
    Which is the opposite of what we want to do.
  • 3. FIND BEAUTIFUL, BIG IMAGES
    Two solid sources

  • 4. ADD A RECTANGLE AT 90% TRANSPARENCY
    PUT CONTRASTING TEXT ON IT
  • 5. FIND A THEME TO PULL IT ALL TOGETHER
    SIMILAR IMAGES? TOPICS?
  • 6. BRIEF TEXT TRIGGERS YOUR MAIN POINTS
    THE IMAGE SUPPORTS THEM
  • 7. FUNNY = GOOD
  • 8. KEEP IT SIMPLE & LIMIT YOUR SLIDES
    THE SLIDES ARE YOUR CUES
  • 9. BUILD IN TIME FOR QUESTIONS
    DISCUSSIONS > ANSWERS
  • 10. CLOSE WITH YOUR CONTACT INFO
