What we’ll cover The What and the Why The problem with bad presentations The fix A working process Take control of the room Everybody loves dessert…

The What and the Why

What is a presentation?

What is not a presentation?

A spot of science

Words-as-text Words-asspeech

Auditory Cortex Visual Cortex

"It is effective to speak to a diagram, because it presents information in a different form. But it is not effective to speak the same words that are written, because it is putting too much load on the mind and decreases your ability to understand what is being presented.“ - John Sweller

Why do good people make bad presentations?

The fix

Death to Powerpoint?

Be a storyteller (we all are)

“To be a person is to have a story to tell.” Isaak Dinesen

Make better slides



Guns don’t kill people, bullets kill people

Emotions, visualizations and data, not bullet points

A working process

Start away from the computer

It will get messy!

Post-Its are your friends!

Only then should you go to presentationware

Don’t be a PowerPoint Ninja!

”The singer, not the song” - Mick Jagger

Take control of the room

Get the gear right

Know thyself Know thy gear!

Practice makes…

Timing is everything (almost)

Talking turns


Human interaction

Don’t hide behind the lectern

You can leave the light on

Accidents can will happen

”Failure is always an option” - Adam Savage

What if I get nervous?

Remembering it all

Everybody loves dessert…

Handouts and Take aways

Graphs and figures are images, too

Professional clear plastic binder
