  • hmmm - true - but that takes a skilled presenter to do so, and to be honest I don’t know many who can do that eloquently - flipping through many slides can be daunting if you don’t have the skill. As you may have noticed the pieces of advice I put together are meant for people who are starting... how they evolve in their practice is up to them. But I totally agree - rules are there to be broken, provided they don’t harm you or the others (before we start running, we need to learn how to walk, and before that being able to stand is a requirement! ;-) )
    My goal with this prez was to make sure people walk away from their 1st experience as a presenter ’standing tall’ and feeling proud of themselves for their 1st attempt.

  • I have to agree with James on making 'rules' for the number of slides and the minutes per slide. It all depends on what you say and how you design your slides. I just finished a slidedeck for a client that had 75 slides and he spoke for about 40 minutes. Most of the slides were purely visual (no text) and were up for a few seconds. Careful with any rules for slides - they can force people to make bad design decisions. Make sure slides are just a tool for the presentation and not the main focus!

  • The number of slides x time on slide 3 I think is a rule that can be broken. I once did 96 slides in 12 minutes http://elearningstuff.net/2010/04/14/96-slides-in-12-minutes-presentation-styles/ whereas this presentation http://www.slideshare.net/jamesclay/keynote-highland-council-high-tech-day was 161 slides in about 20 minutes.
