  • Presentation Lessons for Entrepreneurs Pt. 3

    Design is a trick area in presentations, because it’s a thin line between sparse and overkill. Schultink has offered some tips on how to find the right balance.

    The last installment of Jan Schultink’s ambitious slideshow, Presentation Lessons for Entrepreneurs, where the focus is on design. Design is a trick area in presentations, because it’s a thin line between sparse and overkill. Schultink has offered some tips on how to find the right balance:

    1. Bullet Points — use bullet points to make your points – but limit them.
    2. Limit to 10 slides for 20 minutes – if you can’t get there from here – go back and distill down, because you are going to lose their focus, no matter how good the presentation.
    3. Don’t hurry presentation design.
    4. Good graphics does not mean sophisticated graphics. Graphics have to match the content – they need to make sense, and more so, they need not distract away from content and overall presentation.
    5. Limit clip art.
    6. Don’t stretch pictures.
    7. Appreciate white space
    8. Easy on the animations.
    9. Stay on time

    Good luck.
