Guy Kawasaki shares his “rule” for effective Powerpoint presentations, which I will paraphrase below:
- “10” is the optimal number of slides.
- “20” is the number of minutes it should take to give the presentation
- “30” is the minimum font size that you should be using (i.e., no smaller than 30)
Lots of other tips for those that a creating presentations for venture capitalists in Guy’s post, but the 10/20/30 rule is universally applicable.
