Presentation FAQs: #1 How many slides in my presentation?

In my years & years of blogging experience this has been one of the most asked questions. How many slides should my PowerPoint presentation have?

The answer is very straightforward - It does not matter.

The number of slides does not matter. Stop asking this question and stop worrying about it. What matters is how much time you take and what you talk about. Your audience does not know or want to know how many slides you have. If you want to present for 10 minutes, make your slides and then rehearse your presentation. If you exceed 10 minutes, cut down on content. It does not matter how many slides you have. It's that simple!
