Most Of Us Remember Only 3 Things

@matuvu

So dont try to fit in 30...

Wednesday 11 July 12

1 Slide = 1 Idea

@matuvu

Youre giving a presentation, youre not handing out a document!

Stick To Your TimeAlways

3/ The Story

@matuvu

Wednesday 11 July 12

Structure Of A Story

@matuvu

beginning, middle, end vs tension

Wednesday 11 July 12

Basically Your Story Needs:

@matuvu

1. a problem2. a solution

inbeween some crises and atleast 1 joke

Wednesday 11 July 12

Use This Structure For Your Outline

@matuvu

It works faster

Wednesday 11 July 12

The Joke Is Essential!

@matuvu

You can drop all the other stuff.

Wednesday 11 July 12

On The Jokes

@matuvu

3 ways to integrate jokes:

1. Tell it2. Integrate it in the slide + talk

3. Only show it in your slide and have the audience notice it.

Wednesday 11 July 12

Connect With The Audience

@matuvu

You you need to make a personal connection with the audience.

A joke is a good way.Asking interaction is another.

(Hard in Belgium!)

Add eye contact, dont read your slides

Wednesday 11 July 12

4/ Design

@matuvu

Wednesday 11 July 12

Use A Comprehensive Structure

@matuvu

Make sure people get the underlying structure through your design (same titles, same structure)

Wednesday 11 July 12

@matuvu

Make sure everything is aligned the same way.

Align!

Wednesday 11 July 12

Contrast

@matuvu

Use contrasting slides.What works on your computer doesnt on projector

STRONGSoft

Wednesday 11 July 12

Use 1 Or 2 Personal Fonts

@matuvu

It shows emotion.Use it for your titles.

Add A Nice Touch Not Only

Times New Roman

Use Big Fonts

@matuvu

Take the age of oldest person of the audienceand devide it by 2 = min. fontsize

Go Big!!!

Drop The Bullets!

Only place where to use it:at the start or in the summary
