    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
