Effective Presentations: design fundamentals

Effective Presentations: design fundamentals

This is the third and final talk I gave in front of Ocado Technology on the topic of delivering effective presentations.

This one is about design, particularly slide design.
How often do you encounter slides which are cluttered with bullet points and images that bring no value? I'd guess more than it has to.

Well, in this presentation, I am giving you the basic principles and tools behind great slide design that will make your slides among the top 10% (or even more) in the WORLD. This is not exaggerated. It's just that presentations we see nowadays, honestly, suck!

So, it's time to cure the planet from bad slides.
