Change This: Presenting to Small Audiences

Presentations to small audiences have very different requirements than those for large audiences, and yet most people design them as if they were just the same.

Issue number 50 of Seth Godin's brainchild ChangeThis includes a manifesto of his on How to Sell a Book or Any New Idea, as well as one of my own entitled Presenting to Small Audiences: Turn off the Projector!


One Response to Change This: Presenting to Small Audiences

  1. Andrew,
    A couple of questions about your manifesto:
    1. How should the presenter handle the transition between slides within the handout? Repeatedly instructing the audience to turn to the next page feels a little ‘clunky’.
    2. What are your thoughts on the number of slides per page within a handout? Powerpoint has many options for this, however more slides per page obviously reduces clarity and resolution.
