    • Based on 20x20 framework (20 slides, 20 seconds per slide)
    • You end up with just under 7 minutes to share 20 slides
  • 10.
    • 10 slides, 20 seconds per slide
    • Slides created by Amy Harris
  • 11.
    • There is nothing worse when you’re presenting than a wordy slide.
    • There are two reasons for this. First of all, it is nearly impossible for your audience to read so much text (especially if you’re in a large room)
    • Secondly, putting entire sentences on your PowerPoint slides encourages you to read directly from the slide, which means you are facing your PowerPoint and not your audience. Your audience is also less likely to pay attention to you talking because they can read what you’re going to say (if they can read it, that is).

    • Too much text = bad
      • Difficult to read
      • Harder to engage with your audience
    • Use the 7x7 rule
    • Bullets, not sentences
  • 13.
    • Like all things, moderation is key
    • Make them relevant and interesting but not overwhelming to your content
    • If you have to explain your choice of images, maybe you should rethink
  • 14.
    • Like salt, images are great in moderation
    • Watermarking is your friend
    • So is Flickr (advanced searching)
    • Some text + well-chosen images is ideal

  • 15.
    • Powerpoint has lots of fonts
    • We should use as many as possible
    • An interesting font keeps your audience interested
    • Some fonts have entire websites devoted to them!
    • Not using an awesome font is SCARY!
  • 16.
    • KISS
    • Sans serif is easier to read online
    • Let the geniuses at Microsoft help you!
    • Font size should be no less than 24

  • 17.
    • Animations are awesome
    • PowerPoint has lots of them
    • So we’re obligated to use them all
    • RIGHT??
  • 18.
    • Moderation is key (again)
    • Good for revealing one point at a time
    • Stick with one motif
    • To incorporate animation, use the animation tab in PPT and choose “Animate” or “Custom Animation”
  • 19.  
  • 20.
    • Keep it simple
    • Complex graphs are more useful on handouts
