Along the way weve discovered10

five simple rules for creating world-changing presentations.11

The first rule is: Treat your audience as king.12

Your audience deserves to be treated like royalty. Design a presentation that meets their needs, not just yours.13

Audiences want to know what you can do for them, why they should adopt your view, and the steps they need to follow to take action.14

Give them those things in a clear, easily understandable way15

and you will undoubtedly find favor with the king.16

The second rule is: Spread ideas and move people.17

Your audience didnt show up to read your 60 page on screen dissertation.18

Theyre there to see you. To be inspired by your message20

and witness the quality of your thought.21

You are not giving your presentation to have another meeting. You are there to covey meaning.22

So, consider including imagery that powerfully illustrates your point.23

Sometimes moving images can inspire in a way that static slides cannot. A slow moving animation creates a sense of nostalgia.24

A sequential build adds a sense of suspense.25

And a thought-provoking video moves your audience in a way that can change not only minds, but hearts.26

The next rule is: Help them see what you are saying.27

Half of the people in your audience are verbal thinkers and the other half are visual.28

Combining minimal text with meaningful visuals means that youll reach everyone.29

Brainstorm graphics that will effectively communicate your message30

and replace those words with a picture, chart or diagram. Then apply a consistent treatment to your graphics to give your whole presentation a unified look so that your audience is attracted to, rather than distracted from, your message.31

Rule number 4: Practice design, not decoration.32

As tempting as it is to fill your slides with stuff, often de-decorating is the best policy.33

Any writer or designer will tell you that 90% of the creative process34

is destructive.35

Do you have a main point? Consider putting just one word on the slide by itself. Want them to remember a few items? Dont show everything at once. Instead, show one item at a time. Have a picture that expresses your idea? Scale that picture so that it fills the slide. Have a quote that says it all? Let it say it and remove everything else.36

The last rule is: Cultivate healthy relationships (with your slides and your audience)37

Letting go is hard, we know.38

But dont hide behind your slides.39

Breaking your dependence on your slides can do a world of good for your relationship with your audience.40

Reduce the amount of text to a few key words. Put the rest into your notes.41

And practice, practice, practice.42

Thinking of your slides as digital scenery,43

Allows you to connect eye-to-eye with your audience in a meaningful way.44

So there are the rules.45

But the question remainsWhy go to all this trouble?46

Why not do it the way you are used to?47

The answer is simple. Because everyone else does it that way, too. You need to stand apart and be different.48

When you apply these rules,49

and keep the audiences needs top of mind,50

your presentation will not only hold their attention,51

But also change the world. (Well, at least your part of the world.)52
