8 Tips To Create Epic Visual Presentations

1. Tell A Great Story
Craft A Compelling Story That Engages The Audience And Creates Curiosity

2. The 10/20/30 Rule Of Powerpoint
10 Slides - Pick The Most Important Points
20 Minutes - Present In Under 20 Minutes
Any Longer And You Will Lose The Engagement Of The Audience

Large Fonts Are Easier To Read
Small Font Sizes Are Hard To Read

3. Less Is More
Use Headlines, Not Paragraphs
The Slides Compliment Your Speech Not The Other Way Around
Perfection Is Achieved, Not When There Is Nothing More To Add, But When There Is Nothing Left To Take Away.
- Antoine De Saint-exupery
