Transcript of Presentation On Presentations
Trigger an action!
best to tell a story that has meaning
feels fast and easy to create
reassuring and inspiring VS intimidating
In prezi you write in space
write a walk
keep it simple
create structured text & overview
explore the space!
let a metaphor inspire you
For example, presenting to an audience of 100 people for 45 minutes
= 1 week of human attention spent viewing your presentation.
Things you understood?
Or space, smells, touch?
How an experience made you feel?
Creating a cinematic atmosphere
can make for a memorable experience
but sometimes it's just context
choose your path with care
What makes a prezi
Your prezi should be a...
What do you remember more?
Your prezi should always

This part is all about creating a prezi that makes the audience...
It's more than
It's more than
a pretty background
Like the metaphors and concepts conveyed in these templates:
In general, to create an experience that feels positive your prezi should be
Here the templates have no specific metaphor or meaning, but help set the tone for the whole presentation.
"The method of loci is also commonly referred to as the journey method. In basic terms, it is a method of memory enhancement which uses visualization to organize and recall information. Many memory contest champions claim to use this technique in order to recall faces, digits, and lists of words. These champions’ successes have little to do with brain structure or intelligence, but more to do with their technique of using regions of their brain that have to do with spatial learning."
Spatial organisations can help people remember:
The eyes focus mostly on the title, then the first bullet point. From there the focus diminishes as the viewer reads their way through the bullet point list.
Prezi brings the content to the center by zooming, it also removes other content on our canvas from view. As a result the viewer’s eyes are drawn to the center of the screen at each viewpoint, and are focused on one section of content at a time.
The following tests were conducted using heat spots to indicate where the users' eyes focused when viewing a screen. The red color indicates more focus and time spent viewing a particular area; green areas show less focus.
But why create scenes?
Does my data really need sceneography?
If you like to focus on details, yes.
Convey perspective as you move to/from detail
You should have a
That conveys the overarching point of your presentation
to an overview
at all levels, as you zoom from small details
travel in context
no jumps, no spins
use frames to zoom in and out
is the journey
Here, there's no sense of space
Here, we explore the space semantically
Do the 'squint test' on your
of your prezi
Think like a photographer / filmaker when you move
How to write in prezi
The 'Zen' approach
Background metaphor: Reach towards the stars!
Use arrows to indicate flow
Always create an overview that helps people to understand
If your prezi looks like this, it's too rigid, and easy to lose context as you move around
You need both
Like a floor plan...
It makes sense from the overview
You want to be here
to find, then express relations
if your prezi looks like this, please work a little more, scale up main points, place subtopics into larger frames, etc...
Yeah, easy for maps.
But not everything can be organized spatially ?!?
Traditional, but hard to visualize the relationships between each team member
Simple and stylish, but it doesn't
give us the detail we need to truly understand
Working spatially, you can compress the information into a meaningful overview structure.
You can zoom to see the relationships in more detail if needed.
Clusters of content to reinforce meaning.
Squint and view your overview from a distance - does it still make sense?
This overview has been blurred,
but can you still guess the overall theme?
Create structures that show relationships and context:
If not, how do you expect your audience to understand?
Concluding with an overview (or final reveal) can be a great way to bring the context of your story together.
"Okay, but how does this work for my presentation?"
You've likely all seen a simple linear narrative...
A spatial narrative has a more visual structure
which helps you to follow the story.
Just like it helps the viewer follow a long movie, it can help the viewer follow long or complex presentations.
The Intergalactic Empire
CONTINUE BEING EVIL
Imperial ground forces
Blow up Death Star (again)
Save Galaxy (again)
The Rebel Alliance
Super Star Destroyer
You wouldn't stand inches away and run your nose along this mural to view it
The overview structure implies the tension
between the two sides
- it can be conveyed even at a distance where we can't see the details
in your prezi it's
Linear, hierarchical list
Our small team of software developers
have a team lead
have an approver (CEO)
work towards a goal
this work is measured with a metric (KPI)
the KPI has a Target
metric / target
reach the Goal
Here, the lesser value is smaller in scale
Smaller items in the cluster
visually indicate sub-levels
You'd move out to see context then back in to see the details.
