  • Loved it. As you mentioned slides must be minimal but then the person presenting must be upbeat and know how to highlight what really matters. Thanks.

  • This presentation is helpful and I've drawn on it to tweak my latest slide show. However, the content on which Alexei presents is fairly simple. Not all of his design rules travel seamlessly to presentations on complex topics requiring lots of data.

    Death by PowerPoint Death by PowerPoint Presentation Transcript

    • Death by PowerPoint 
 (and how to fight it) Alexei Kapterev
    • There are 300 million PowerPoint users 
 in the world* * estimate
    • They do 30 million presentations 
 each day* * estimate
    • About a million presentations are 
 going on right now* * estimate
    • 50% of them are unbearable* * conservative estimate
    • LOTS of people are killing each other
 with bad presentations. NOW.
    • They are all DEAD! Well, almost.
    • Bad presentations Bad communication Bad relations Less sales Less money Less training A vicious circle
    • Let’s make the world 
 a better place.
    • Why are they doing it?!
    • !Bullets don’t kill people "People kill people #Unintentionally $Yet regularly Research shows:
    • Mainly due to lack of... !Significance "Structure #Simplicity $Rehearsal
    • Significance !"#$
    • To “pass the information”? Your boss told you to? Or to make meaning? Why do you present?
    • What’s the subject and why it matters to you?
    • !Significance creates passion "Passion attracts attention #Attention leads to action How presentations work
    • Are you passionate? Check yourself.
    • This is passion.
    • This is passion.
    • This is passion.
    • This is not.
    • Can’t find 
 the meaning?
 Don’t present.
    • Structure !"#$
    • Structure is how you place the building blocks of your story.
    • !Convincing "Memorable #Scalable Q: What structure to use? A: Any – as long as it is:
    • !Problem – Pathway – Solution "Problem – Solution – Reasoning #Fancy stuff (if it makes sense) Structure choices
    • Give 3-4 reasons supporting your point. They will not remember more anyway.
    • }45 minutes 1 argument 2 argument 3 argument Memorable opening Memorable closing 1 More details... 2 More details... 3 More details... 1 More details... 2 More details... 3 More details... 1 More details... 2 More details... 3 More details...
    • You can tell this in... 5 minutes 15 minutes 45 minutes It is scalable.
    • Simplicity !"#$
    • Everything should be made as simple as possible but not simpler.
    • Apparently, being simple 
 is not that simple. Will give you some examples.
    • Don’t worry: knowing the language doesn’t really help.
    • Notice cool background.
    • Hey, we’ve got DATA!
    • This one’s my favorite.
    • Fundamental problem?
    • !Visualize ideas "Create key points #Impress PowerPoint helps to:
    • ! Prompter " Handouts # Data dumps They use it as:
    • People read faster than you speak. This means you are useless.
    • How much is an extra slide? $0.00. Zero Dollars. Break it in several. It’s free.
    • What’s the point?
 One simple point? Remove everything else.
    • Well, some are 
 just hopeless.
    • Do you remember the rule: 7 lines per slide or less 7 words per line or less? Well, it is just plain stupid If you follow this “rule” You get a slide like this Ditch stupid “rules”
    • Do you remember the rule: 7 lines per slide or less 7 words per line or less? Well, it is just plain stupid If you follow this “rule” You get a slide like this Ditch stupid “rules” Cramped. Boring.
    • Simple design rules* !One point per slide "Few matching colours #Very few fonts $Photos, not clipart * pun intended
    • Less text. More imagery. Wild imagery.
    • But what if I need to 
 send or print the slides?
    • Write a document
    • The Largest
 Leasing Companies •Hansa Leasing •РГ Лизинг •Авангард-Лизинг •Raiffeisen Leasing •ММБ-Лизинг Make 2 sets of slides
    • Print with notes
    • Inform with little text* * yes you can
    • Rehearsal !"#$
    • It will never work completely for the first time. Trust me.
    • YOU PRESENTATION RECIPIENT Feedback. Go get some.
    • No audience? Present to the furniture. But aloud. Try it.
    • Check the room 
 and equipment.
    • Presentation checklist
    • All this leads to...
    • Wow* * great presentations
