  1. Follow Guy Kawasaki’s advice: The 10/20/30 Rule of PowerPoint: 10 slides, 20 minutes, 30-point font.
  2. Give a PechaKucha presentation, which is “… a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). The format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events called PechaKucha Nights.”
