How long should my presentation be and how can I be more concise?


I get asked this question every day, and I always respond with a question, why do you want to be concise?

Typically, people don’t have a good answer for this other than some vague, general notion that, all things being equal (they never are), it’s better to be concise than it is to be long-winded.

Most business presenters aspire to be concise because they realize that based on their own experiences, most business presentations are really, really boring and seem to go on way too long. So, if you have a choice to be really boring for a long time, versus being really boring for a short time, then it’s better to be really boring for a short time because that will cause less pain.
