Follow the 50-30-20 Rule in Presentations

In presentations, there are three important components that we have to focus on if we want to succeed. These three things are:


However, these three components do not share the same level of importance. The amount of time we spend getting these three components done right varies:

30% – Slides
20% – Delivery

If we follow this principle, then we wouldn’t be wasting all our efforts preparing our slides until the last minute only to realize that we didn’t rehearse enough to make our delivery provide impact.
