Presentation rules

The amount of information on the web is truly awesome. I use Google Reader as my rss reader, and I have 3 dozens of subscriptions. I had 2 exams this week, MBA requires some effort, and it’s been several days since I read posts.
You won’t believe how many new posts I had – over 200!! I’m really starting to appreciate all those RSS readers, like google – they can save you time by showing all your subscriptions in one place. Thanks!

I read through some of my subscriptions and found posts about presentations – how to make a successful presentation, where to find good pictures, the rules – a lot of info.
I have a presentation coming up this Sunday, and I decided to put to the test some of these tips, and start with the pictures tip.

The basic idea is that a presentation should appeal to your emotion. And that your slides should support what you say, not repeat it. Don’t overload your slides with text. The 10/20/30 rule (Guy Kawasaki) says that your presentation should have 10 slides, take 20 minutes and font size of 30 or above. If your slides repeat what you say, the audience doesn’t need you.

So, I’m going to make some adjustments to my presentation and I’ll let you know the outcome next week..

And thanks to Seth’s Blog, Guy Kawasaki and Presentation Zen for their contributions.
