  • “The 10/20/30 Rule of PowerPoint” by Guy Kawasaki (2005.12.30) – http://blog.guykawasaki.com/2005/12/the_102030_rule.html
      The 10/20/30 Rule of PowerPoint: … a PowerPoint presentation should have ten slides, last no more than twenty minutes, and contain no font smaller than thirty points.

    • Ten slides. … a normal human being cannot comprehend more than ten concepts in a meeting … The ten topics that a venture capitalist cares about are:
      • 1. Problem
      • 2. Your solution
      • 3. Business model
      • 4. Underlying magic/technology
      • 5. Marketing and sales
      • 6. Competition
      • 7. Team
      • 8. Projections and milestones
      • 9. Status and timeline
      • 0. Summary and call to action
    • Twenty minutes.
    • Thirty-point font. … If “thirty points,” is too dogmatic, the I offer you an algorithm: find out the age of the oldest person in your audience and divide it by two. That’s your optimal font size.

    • “It’s not what you know or who you know, but who knows you.” Susan RoAne.
    • The key is to establish a relationship before you need it. And this is why I’d like to provide the art of schmoozing.
    • 1. Understand the goal. … “Discovering what you can do for someone else.” …
    • 2. Get out.
    • 3. Ask good questions, then shut up. … get others to talk a lot. … good schmoozers are good listeners, not good talkers …
    • 4. Unveil your passions.
    • 5. Read voraciously. … read voraciously–and not just the EE Times, PC Magazine, and the Wall Street Journal. You need a broad base of knowledge so that you can access a vast array of information during conversations. …
    • 6. Follow up.
    • 7. Make it easy to get in touch.
    • 8. Give favors.
    • 9. Ask for the return of favors. Good schmoozers give favors. Good schmoozers also return favors. However, great schmoozers ask for the return of favors. …
