  • “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.
