Most of us know what makes a great presentation.
If you’ve ever seen a great presentation you’ll know two things:
1. Great presentations make ideas stick and spread, but
2. hardly any presentations are great.
It’s easy to spot a great presentation. So why are there still so few?
I bet we all know the so-called ’rules’, too. Talk loudly and slowly. Don’t move around too much. Don’t stand in one place. Have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Make it interactive. Leave questions ’til the end. No more than one point per slide. No more than seven slides in total. Use lots of pictures. Don’t put too many words on a slide. Use bullets, not prose. Replace text with diagrams.
But, which of those rules work? And, what’s missing?
I want to help answer these questions.
So, please share your ideas here. And add your own questions, too.
