Tips & tricks

  • Keep it short. We recommend not having more than 20 slides for a reader to click through.

  • Pick stories that have a strong chronological narrative. It does not work well for stories that need to jump around in the timeline.

  • Write each event as a part of a larger narrative.

  • Include events that build up to major occurrences — not just the major events.
