I spend about 20% of my working week in presentations. These usually involve presenting [email protected] solutions (our time recording and billing solution – [email protected] and our expense management solution – [email protected]) to organisations or business partners.

I always welcome tips or techniques which can assist my presentations and help me to communicate my message to the audience. The simplest and most effective of these was given to me only yesterday and in one sentence summarises the multitude of theories and training course techniques that I have seen over the years:

The 10/20/30 rule of PowerPoint: – “A PowerPoint presentation should have 10 slides, last no more than 20 minutes, and contain no font smaller than 30 points”.

Your audience will be grateful!
