  • By Nancy Duarte of Durate Design in Mountain View, CA. If you’ve enjoyed the talks from the TED conferences, you can thank Nancy Durarte, whose work on Al Gore’s slideset was the impetus for an Inconvenient Truth and a flood of improvmeents to slidepresentations world wide.
  • Practice presenting your slides a few times, then highlight only one keyword per bullet point. Focus on the higlighted word. Deliver your slides from the keywords, use the rest of the words as notes, and consider replacing the keyword with an image.
  • Many people are auditory learners. Read your script or present yoru lecture out loud and record the delivery. Play it back in the car, or elsewhere. Once you get over hearing your own voice, you’ll be able to absorb the content and not focus on the slides.
  • Practice, make note cards, draw a mind map, and then look at your slides and delete as much as possible
