Talk fast to fit it all in, or condense and speak calm and connected? What would you do if you had a choice?

Kuan walked into the room ready to present when the organizer told him, “Sorry, we can only give you 15 minutes and not 30 for your presentation.” What does Kuan do? Does he talk fast to cover everything he planned? Or does he cut back his information and only present what is essential?

Talking fast: If Kuan decides to talk fast and hurry through the information, he’ll end up mumbling some of the numbers so he can get through them. He’ll barely look at the audience. But he will cover every bit of information.

Speaking calm and connected: What if Kuan makes some last-minute decisions? He cuts the big chart and leaves out all explaining all the potential strategies he was considering, only telling the audience his chosen strategy. He even has time to ask the audience a question.

If you were in the audience, which presentation would you want to sit through?
If you were Kuan, how would you prepare for this scenario?


Custom Show: Create a smaller custom show from your large deck of PowerPoint slides. Go to slide show>custom shows. You can create a “custom show” that will in slide show only show those slides you have chosen. This is one of the best features in PowerPoint! I am constantly amazed most presenters do not know this.
