How to give a memorably bad presentation

  • Have a slide deck that is too long for your allotted time
  • Use bad fonts with drop shadows
  • Use funny voices and occasionally sing
  • Frantically wave your hands around
  • Be sure to never credit your sources
  • Talk a lot about your credentials
  • Use only really obscure examples of whatever you’re talking about
  • Avoid eye contact with the audience
  • Bring up lots of anecdotes about times when you were smarter than other people
  • Be sure to not leave any time for questions at the end
  • Apologize for your presentation
