How to create Rockstar Presentations

Posted on: May 28, 2012

Today I watched a great webinar (recorded) called “How to create Rockstar Presentations”. This was created and presented by “Empowered Presentations”, a leading design firm specializing in making personalized presentations,

We all write slides, and present them. For some of us (especially trainers), its the full time work, few others do it as part of their job, may be 10% or 20% of the time, In any case, we focus a lot on the way we explain stuff, body language, interacting with students etc.,

What about the slides themselves? Are we making them good enough? Or still sticking to that 1980s mindset “Slide = Text in BIG BOLD characters”? This presentation questions that and explains how to create Rockstar presentations.

Actually, Rockstar is an acronym for 8 things we need to remember when making slides:

  • R = Rehab (your old slides)
  • O = Over the top (Don’t use cliched stuff!)
  • C = Creative
  • K = Keep it Simple
  • S = Structure (One thought per slide)
  • T = Timely (Finish it ontime, or early)
  • A = (Call for) Action
  • R = Rehearse (a lot)

This may sound very simple, but this webinar recording explains why all these 8 points are important and how to do them right. It is a must for everyone who wants to make good slides, and become a great presenter.

Unfortunately, There is no direct link to this webinar, You need to follow these steps:

1. Go to (If you are not a member of this site already, you need to register for a free account there)
2. Search for the word “Rockstar” and locate this webinar
3. Click on “View Recording”
4. This presentation runs for about 55 minutes, The first 15 minutes, the presenter talks about her personal life, interests etc., So you can feel free to jump ahead 🙂
