  • Death by PowerPoint
  • There are 300* million PPT users in the worldThere are 30* million PPTs every day 50% of them are unbearable… ! * Research estimates
  • LOTS of peopleare killing each otherwith bad presentations. NOW.
  • Well, almost….
  • Wasting…. Time Money
  • Nice Presentation
  • A vicious circle Bad presentations Bad communication Lesstraining Bad relations Less money Less sales
  • Why does this happen ?
  • Mainly due to lack of... Significance Structure Simplicity Style
  • Significance
  • Why do you present? To “pass the information”? Your boss told you to? Or to achieve an objective?
  • What’s the objective ?Expected outcome ?
  • How presentations workSignificance creates passionPassion attracts attentionAttention leads to action
  • Are you passionate? Check yourself.
  • This is passion.
  • This is passion.
  • This is not.
  • Can’t find the passion?Don’t present.
  • Structure
  • Structure is how you place thebuilding blocks of your story.
  • Q: What structure to use?A: Any – as long as it is: Convincing Memorable Scalable
  • Structure choicesProblem – Pathway – SolutionProblem – Solution – ReasoningFancy stuff (if you can pull it off)
  • Big picture vs. details
  • Give 3-4 reasons supporting your point.They will not remember more anyway.
  • Structure your presentationaround meaning, and the bigpicture. Then support key ideaswith details.
  • Memorable opening 1 More details... 1 argument 2 More details... 3 More details... 2 argument 1 2 More details... More details... 45 3 More details... minutes 1 More details... 3 argument 2 3 More details... More details...Memorable closing
  • You can tell this in... 5 minutes 15 minutes 45 minutes It is scalable.
  • Remember…» Say what you want to say» Say it Say what you just said
  • Simplicity
  • “ Everything should be made assimple as possible but not simpler.
  • Apparently, being simple is not that simple.Will give you some examples.
  • Notice cool background.
  • This one’s my favorite.
  • Fundamental problem?
  • PowerPoint helps to:Visualize ideasCreate key pointsImpress
  • They use it as:PrompterHandoutsData dumps
  • Make up your mind :You want people to read or to listen ?
  • How much is an extra slide? Its FREE !Break it in several parts.
  • What’s the point? One simple point?Remove everything else.
  • But what if I need tosend or print the slides?
  • Write a document
  • Enhancing Effects …• Colour• Template• Images• Text and Bullets• Charts• Break bumpers
  • Other combinations are just as bad! Can’t read the above?!
  • We are incredible at remembering pictures.
  • Hear a piece of information,and three days later you’llremember 10% of it.
  • Add a picture and you’llremember 65%.
  • Rule of thumb Oral 10% 3x 6xVisual 35%Oral &Visual 65%Source: Najjar, LJ (1998) Principles of educational multimedia user interface design (via Brain Rules by John Medina, 2008)
  • Recognition soars with pictures “ Various studies show that recognition doubles for a picture compared with text. ” — Dr. John Medinapictures only text only 0% 50% 100% source: www.brainrules.net/vision

  • The brain needs a break.
  • After 10 minutes,audience attentionsteadily drops.
  • The 10-minute rule HighAttention Low 10 20 30 40 50 Minutes of class time Source: www.brainrules.net/attention
  • So do somethingemotionally relevant ateach 10-minute mark toregain attention.
  • Change gears every10 minutes in yourpresentation !Tell a relevant storyshow a relevantvideo, do a relevantactivity, etc.
  • Style
  • StylePreparationPractice
  • 1 Passively sitting is a very unnatural thing. Even we have no patience for tedium.
  • 2 During the preparation stage, if youʼre struggling with an idea, if youʼre stuck, then go for a walk, a run, just move...
  • ...we were born to move. Evidence suggest we may even think better if we toss the couch-potato lifestyle.
  • Multi Tasking is a Myth !
  • People who are interrupted:Take 50% longer to complete a task. Make 50% more errors.
  • If the presentation matters, youneed time off the grid to prepare.
  • YOU PRESENTATION RECIPIENTFeedback. Go get some.
  • Check the roomand equipment.
  • It will never work completely for the first time. Trust me.
  • Presentation checklist Style
  • All this leads to...
  • Wow !
