The ultimate presentation

Designing presentations has always been fun. Normally we write, add, delete, edit and finally arrive at what seems to be our best effort. This is after losing a night's sleep and sipping lots of coffee. What makes the presentation, which is a 10 minute affair in most cases, so important? What should it contain to attract attention and drive home your point? Lets see...
  • Make is as visually appealing as possible
  • Use fewer words(best presentations have 40 words in 10 slides)
  • Check each slide, header, point if it is absolutely necessary
  • Avoid repetitions
  • 'Create' the template yourself or check for an apt one
  • Deliver it yourself dynamically
  • High energy, movement, attitude, dress... everything matters
  • Lend your personality to the presentation (it always contributes. Why not shape it?)
  • Get a critical view before you actually present
  • Practice, rehearse
  • Smile
Have a lot of confidence in the topic and area of presentation. You are ready to rock!
