Why the 10-20-30 PowerPoint rule still works for Presentations

Devised way back in 2005 by business guru Guy Kawasaki, the relevance today of his PowerPoint 10-20-30 system for presentations has often been questioned. We believed it is still very relevant and here is why.

The principle works

The principle that presentations should contain no more than 10 slides, last no longer than 20 minutes and feature font no smaller than 30 points, still makes sense.

People battle to simplify presentations, so limiting it to 10 slides ensures you present what is most relevant.

Using the 20-minute max principle is about holding people’s attention. Way too many presentations are too long. Directors of corporate videos, in fact, swear that the attention span of people is no more than 7 or 8 minutes!

Finally, the 30 point font relates to the average vision capability of people to see from the back of an average room - and this has not changed.
