The Kawasaki Rules of PowerPoint

Welcome to 2006!

Our first entry comes from a former Apple alumni, Guy Kawasaki, who brings us his view on the "The 10/20/30 Rule of PowerPoint"

According to Guy (who's a venture capitalist now), it’s quite simple: "a PowerPoint presentation should have ten slides, last no more than twenty minutes, and contain no font smaller than thirty points."

  • Ten is the optimal number of slides in a PowerPoint presentation because a normal human being cannot comprehend more than ten concepts in a meeting.
  • Give your ten slides in twenty minutes.

BOTTOMLINE: For a brief short outline of a presentation, read Guy's article here.
