Join Chris Croft for an in-depth discussion in this video Planning the timing, part of Management: Top Tips.
- Next, it's important to plan…the timing of your talk.…Most people have too much material,…they're worried about running out of material.…So they put too much in, and then the talk goes over time.…So it's very important to think…about how much you're going to be able…to cover in your talk.…I take about five minutes per PowerPoint slide,…but then I do talk a lot.…Most people take two or three minutes per PowerPoint slide.…So that means that if you've got five slides,…it's going to take you about 10 minutes to give that talk,…plus a few minutes on the beginning…and on the end for your introduction and your conclusion,…so you're probably up to 15 minutes…if you start with five slides.…
Another way to think about this is,…if you're going to do a 20-minute talk,…take off five minutes for the introduction…and the summing up, that leaves you 15 minutes,…so how many slides are you going to cover in those 15 minutes?…And, whatever you do, don't start…a PowerPoint presentation with about 50 slides,…because there's no way you're going to get through…
