First, please put in your RSS feeds reader the slide:ology blog: a must have if you have to make presentations even once on a while.
Second, watch at TED presentations, all of them, great content and great delivery techniques: this stuff rocks!
And now put the two stuff together and you’ll have a great post: Lessons from TED: 5 Simple Tweaks. 5 suggestions from the slide:ology team on how they made presentations with the TED constraints: limited budget, no template, 18 minutes. As these are quite common constraints in corporations, I thought to suggest the post to my readers.
Here are the suggestions (even if of course you need to read the whole post ):
- use a custom background
- choose your fonts wisely
- use animations and transitions appropriately
- one idea per slide
- take care of your images
What are your personal suggestions?
