Presenting

The Do’s and Don’ts of Being a Standout Presenter

Here’s a short excerpt:

Do Use the 10-20-30 Rule

Coined by great the Guy Kawasaki, he says you should have 10 slides per presentation, shouldn’t be over 20 minutes long and nothing smaller than 30 point font. That’s a good place to start.

What do you do if the video you planned to play doesn’t work? Or the projector malfunctions halfway through your presentation? Simple. You keep going.

  1. Great article! I especially like how you alternated the “do’s” and the “don’ts.” I’ve seen plenty of articles like that where the “do’s” are clumped together in one column and the “don’ts” are clumped in another. While I find that easier to read, your paragraphs were short and to the point and the alternating made it seem as though there was more of a variety. It was definitely reader-friendly.
