“Also, you’ll have the chance to be one of 10 attendees to “pitch” your dream using 20 slides timed to advance every 20 seconds.” – Ben Arnett
Presentations can often be tedious….after a lengthy period….they can also be ineffective. Of course, it takes time to develop a concept or idea. Yet 20 slides advancing every 20 seconds…. a total of about 7 minutes…motivates a presenter to make sure that every word counts.
If an idea can’t be communicated in seven minutes than perhaps it needs further refinement.
Looking back on the family business days….we probably had no more than 7 minutes to convince the customer that we were someone to do business with….and that was only the first step.
