One minute presentation Ideas

Hello, Please help with one minute presentation ideas.

This is for a job interview, and the presentation is to show how I speak in front of a large crowd. (mainly school age kids (50to 300+ elem-hs kids)


one minute is not long for a presentation. You will only reallly have time for an ice breaker.

Here is a short one that could work. It involves how we take in ifnrmation. It works best with A4 or letter sized paper printed in colour.

The object of the exercise is that the audience have to call out the colour of the word and not what it says on the paper.

It starts out like this

Word Colour
Red Red
Blue Blue
Orange Orange
Yellow Red
Red Blue
Blue Black
Purple Red

You will need to experiment with this. You may need to do a few more colours to get people settled. If you add in a different background colour that may get them confused. The faster that you do it the more likely you are to achieve the results you need.

After the first three people will read out the words and call them out.

Please let us know if this will work

Just to help you out I have knocked up a short presentation that demonstrates this

Kind regards

I have to make a tiny powerpoint slide presentation with say 10 slides. The slides would play countinuously at an exhibition I am participating in. The aim is to generate interest in my exhibit.
Each slide has to basically boast about my company’s USPs e.g. 15 years of experience, ISO certified, etc.
Could you provide me with tips to make this an attention grabber presentation – what would appeal to the audience the most – statistics, powerful words, graphics??


In essence what you need to do for a trade show is an attention grabber.

There are three things that work well and need to be corodinated
1. Movement – this is what will make people look at the projection screen
2. Picture – a picture will give them something to connect with
3. A short text caption (large words) that will grab people.

Without knowing which industry you work with it is difficult to give more guidence, but if you are looking ofr inspiration then a look at a glossy magazine will have lots of examples in the shaper of full page adverts, or a poster on a road site. If you have a sequence of ones like this you should be able to get noticed.

Kind regards

the lion and the gazelle story

My husband has been a teacher and coach for 30 years, he starts every class, every year, every 9 weeks with this same story, kinda his motto.

The kids crack up, because he gets intense but have come to love and expect it, some students come back just to hear him say it again. here goes, you may have heard it:

“Everyday morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed…every morning a lion wakes up. It knows i must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle…when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.”

get crazy and motivated, at least they won’t forget you!
