  2. 2. You are awesome. We chose you from a huge pool of submissions. We want you to do well and will help you. 2 Thursday, January 30, 14
  3. 3. 3 Thursday, January 30, 14
  4. 4. Thursday, January 30, 14
  5. 5. This is the stage at Town Hall, where you will be speaking Thursday, January 30, 14
  6. 6. This is your confidence monitor. It shows the current slide. It helps prevent you from turning to look at your slides. . Thursday, January 30, 14
  7. 7. It is small. You won’t be able to read from it. It simply cues you to what slide is currently visible behind you. . Thursday, January 30, 14
  8. 8. The red carpet is the best place to be. You’ll look best for the crowd and video. Thursday, January 30, 14
  9. 9. How To Prepare, Part 1 • Stories are better than data • Have four or five beats • A beat is a story, a key point, an example etc. • If it takes ~1 minute to make a point, you have time for 4 or 5 in total • Practice before you make any slides Thursday, January 30, 14
  10. 10. When you practice • Stand up • Hold something microphone like (a pen, a toothbrush, a flashlight) • Set a timer for 5 minutes • Imagine a big crowd of friendly people • Speak at FULL volume • It’s ok if you get stuck at first. You will :) • Revise your material if needed and try again Thursday, January 30, 14
  11. 11. How To Prepare, Part 1 • Moments of silence are good • When you practice, give yourself room to breathe • Silence lets people catch up to what you just said • It’s good to have buffer, places where you plan to pause. Should something go wrong the buffer will help you. Thursday, January 30, 14
  12. 12. How To Prepare, Part 2 • Fonts and sizes • Don’t compete with your slides • Practice (10 times in a hour) • Get exercise / Come early Thursday, January 30, 14
  13. 13. Large fonts please 80 pt 60 pt 40pt 30 20 15 10 If you are reading this I hate you Thursday, January 30, 14
  14. 14. Put important things here Or here But not down here where most of the crowd won’t see it Thursday, January 30, 14
  15. 15. Keep it simple People can’t read long slides and listen to you at the same time and if you fill your slides with complexity it will split the audience’s attention more Thursday, January 30, 14
  16. 16. Thursday, January 30, 14
  17. 17. Avoid complex diagrams. Unless you’re simply referencing how complex something is. No brain can understand a complicated diagram and listen to you all in 15 seconds Thursday, January 30, 14
  18. 18. Photos/Images work best Our brains process photos quickly. They also give you as a speaker flexibility for what specific thing you say while it’s visible. Thursday, January 30, 14
  19. 19. Thursday, January 30, 14
  20. 20. How to find photos • Use photos that grant permission • Creative Commons search at Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/search/ advanced/ • Provide a small url at the bottom of the image for attribution • Or use a stockphoto website 20 Thursday, January 30, 14
  21. 21. The format is flexible We require 20 slides each visible for 15 seconds. But you can show the same slide twice (or more) if you want… Thursday, January 30, 14

  23. 23. Thursday, January 30, 14
  24. 24. Common mistakes • Not practicing • Not practicing • Not practicing • No breathing room / margin for error • Too complex • Lacking a fault tolerant structure (If you forget point #2, can you still make point #3) Thursday, January 30, 14
