When you’re storyboarding a presentation, do the following:

Keep it simple: Draw small visual representations of your ideas on the smallest 1.5” x 2” sticky notes. We love them because they even look like little slides. Constraining your ideas to a small space forces you to use simple, clear words and pictures as proof of concept before creating slides in presentation software. Don’t be embarrassed by rudimentary sketches. This is an ideation phase; doodles work fine as long as you understand them, and if you don’t, the concept is probably too complex anyway.

Limit yourself to one idea per slide: There’s no reason to crowd several ideas onto one slide. Slides are free. Make as many as you need …so each idea has its own moment onstage.
