I attend a lot of talks, conferences and business networking events and dread to think how many presentations I have listened to in my career. To be honest only a fraction ever generated interest due to the poor presentation skills on display. This article is not about presentation skills themselves but just about content, the “what you say?” Rather than “How you say it?” I will also look at what type of media to use.

My recommendation is not to rely too much on PowerPoint, but focus on story telling from your experience instead. Too many people spoil their presentation by putting too much details on PowerPoint slides and just reciting it in front of the audience.

Watch Steve Jobs presenting at Apple product introductions to learn the art of story telling.
