Guy Kawasaki - The perfect pitch

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
This is the Guy Kawasaki 10, 20, 30 rule. I believe many of you watching this are entrepreneurs, or you have to pitch for approval, pitch for resources, pitch for capital. So, we're going to take you down a little divergence here and I'm going to tell you the 10, 20, 30 rule so that you can pitch like an innovator. The 10, 20, 30 rule is that the ultimate number of slides in a PowerPoint presentation should be around ten. Not fifty. Not two. Ten. Ten should cover the major topics of what you need to cover. Ten should cover the major topics. If you want to know exactly what these ten should cover, just Google Guy Kawasaki only ten slides you need. You'll find a blog post that explains exactly what's in these ten slides. Ten concepts, ten thoughts, ten slides is roughly the sweet spot for human comprehension in a pitch. You should be able to give these ten slides in twenty minutes. Yeah, you have a sixty-minute meeting, but it starts late, people leave early, you get interrupted, or you may be using a non Macintosh computer and it takes you forty minutes to make it work with a projector. Lots of things can go wrong. So, try to plan it so that you can give your presentation. Ten slides in twenty minutes. If you can do that, then you have lots of time for discussion and a demo. The 30 is that I think that the smallest font size that should be in any presentation is roughly thirty points. Not eight, ten, or twelve. If you use eight, ten, or twelve, you're putting way, way, way too much text. There should be no complete sentences, no paragraphs of text. Everything is a bullet. One of the consequences of using a thirty point font is it's going to force you into bullets.
