Make a Compelling Case

So, how do we create resonance and communicate powerful ideas?

STORIES!

When you design your presentation as a story, people will be more likely to be convinced. You are not “presenting,” you are TELLING A STORY!

slide4

DESIGN GUIDELINES FOR THE 7-SLIDE STORY

Think of each slide as a scene: build on previous, transition to next, leave an impression

Develop a premise and then prove it

Conflict is interesting; facts usually are not

Stories are only satisfying when conflict is resolved

slide5

How to Develop a Successful Scene

Plant a Question (beginning)

Evoke a specific emotion (middle)

Answer the question (end)

Move the story forward (transition)

POINTERS

Use the real estate of each slide: plan your space; don’t explain everything; make the scene rich; display each slide at least 3 minutes

Plant a question in their minds: a claim, concept, theory, hypothesis, challenge, proposition, or truth

No peek-a-boo!

Consider the following use of slide real estate:
