Presentations Infographic: Making Your Message Stick

Presentations Infographic: Making Your Message Stick | Just Story It! Biz Storytelling | Scoop.it
With over 350 Powerpoint presentations given each second across the globe, how does one go about making theirs stand out from all the others?
Karen Dietz's insight:

Keep this cheat-sheet handy next time you need to make a presentation or use PowerPoint!


It is short quick and to the point. There are only a few missing pieces I would add:

  1. If you have to use bullet points -- no more than 3 to a page, and preferably only one.
  2. Have 1 message per slide.
  3. Use a powerful visual to back up your point.
  4. End with suggested action steps! Never leave your audience guessing about what they should do next :)
  5. If you can, construct your entire presentation using a story arc showing transformation (real or possible).
  6. Practice practice practice so giving presentations is more fun (which is another reason to build stories into your PPT or design your entire PPT as a story -- it's more fun and easier to deliver).


Now go give awesome presentations!
