10/20/30 Rule and Your Presentation

Guy Kawasaki wrote a short blog advocating a simple rule for PowerPoint presentations. He called it the 10/20/30 Rule of PowerPoint. We apply this to presentation help Dublin.

Kawasaki came up with this quick presentation style due to his line of business, citing how he’d often listen to dozens of pitches in a short period of time. Even if you’re not in the venture capital business, the 10/20/30 rule can still be applicable to you.

Given people’s increasingly shortening attention spans, keeping your presentation compact can save all of you time while still getting the meat of your message across.

While we at Interactive Media agree with the spirit of Kawasaki’s rule, we are not bound to it. Depending on the audience and the type of presentations, there may be call for a varied number of slides. Different situations call for a different pitch and different design, therefore the font size may indeed be less than thirty point.

The most important thing is that the message is received and an impression is made. This is what we are achieving consistently at Interactivemedia.ie. Time and time again, our clients are letting us know this. The proof is in the increase in conversions they are achieving from their slide deck pitches, thanks to our presentation help Dublin.
