The following slides are intended to be read either by looking at the laptop screen, or with the back tothe audience.One common wisdom is that there should be a roadmap at the beginning. That is many times a goodthing, only we should design the roadmap to be meaningful.http://www.tudorgirba.com/blog/meaningless-roadmap

About this talk
I used to be extremely afraid of speaking in public
In fact, I was so afraid that I could hardly speak
But, because I had to speak, I spent a bit of timethinking about it
Today, I will share with you some of my reflections onhow to do presentations
I am actually quite nervous to talk about it here

The template in 4 steps
1.Align title to the left, and add logo to the top right
The logo should not be too large, but it should be visible at alltime
Adding it to the right, makes it secondary in the visualhierarchy so that it is not compete with the rest of the text
2.Choose colors and style to match the corporate look3.Delimit the title zone and readjust the style4.Add footer
Slide number is important to let the audience know about theprogress
Add your name, just in case they forgot it
Add the date and place of the presentation to show that it iscustomized for the situation

STOP
why are we here?
If you take this approach, just make sure to not add the total amount of slides, because you do not wantto discourage the audience :)This is one way to deliver talks. While it can be straightforward, it is completely inneffective. Theaudience gets bored, and the retention is low.Before we go forward: why are we here?Lecture |
ˈ
lek ch
ə
r| is a noun meaning “an educational talk to an audience”. It comes from the latin word“legere”, and it used to have meaning of “the action of reading, that which is read”. There used to be atime when reading and exposing facts to an audience was the way of spreading information. Nowadays,we have plenty of other means to take care of that.We are certainly not here to read slides. We are here to communicate. Speakers have to start takingresponsibility.http://www.tudorgirba.com/blog/how-much-time
