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.

  6. Direct compile vs. Virtual Machine
    • A virtual machine is an emulation of a computer system
    • With a virtual machine, the code is compiled to an
    intermediary language
    • Upon execution, the VM code is being compiled runtime
    to the specific platform
    • This makes the code you write cross-platform
    • (continues on next page)

  8. There are 70 million homeless dogs
    in the US
    • Of this 70 million, only about six to eight million enter
    the nation’s shelters
    • Around 10 percent of animals entering shelters have
    been sprayed or neutered
    • Only about half of the ones entering shelters are being
    adopted each year
    • The other half are being euthanized because there is a
    lack of space and adopters
