InnoVenture Southeast Presentation Template

  1. 1. Presentation Format<br />Presenters are organized into four focus areas: mobility, materials, energy, and connectivity. Presenters should make the best pitch possible for their organization and not feel constrained by the assigned category.<br />The audience is hundreds of influential connected people. Don’t try to sell anyone. Intrigue those in the audience enough to want to have more in depth conversations after the presentation. The objective is for presenters to make connections with people in the audience who can help presenters get to the next level.<br />Each presentation is no more than 8 minutes and no more than 10 slides. Typically presenters try to cram too much into their presentations. Zero in on the two or three crucial items do you want listeners to remember. Nail that.<br />People can’t read dense text and listen to you at the same time. Big fonts and compelling images support what you are saying rather than compete with you. Less is more on your slides.<br />These websites have great suggestions for effective presentations:<br /><ul><li>The 10/20/30 Rule of PowerPoint
