10 Tips For Better Power Point Presentations…
#1 • Your first step is to research thoroughly and write your speech. Become an EXPERT on your topic. • Only when this is complete should you start constructing your presentation.
#2 • The Power Point slideshow is NOT the focus of the presentation. • It is there to support YOU, the presenter.
#3 • Never, never ever, ever just read directly from your slides! • Know your topic – use the slides as prompts for yourself that highlight key points to your audience.
#4 • Don’t overload your slides with information
#4b • An extra slide costs nothing
#5 • Make use of visuals! • Pictures! • Graphs! • Diagrams!
#5b • Use High-Quality Pictures – if it’s pixilated, don’t use it. • Use simple diagrams and graphs – don’t use diagrams that are overloaded with data and information – simple, clean lines are best.
#6 • Don’t go over-the-top with Colours, Fonts or Animations. • Choose a theme and stick to it.
#7 • Use a large Font size • Nothing below 25point • Make sure your text can be read easily • Don’t use background colours that interfere with the delivery of your message.
#8 • Make sure everything works! • If you have a video or website to show, make sure the connections work on the equipment you’ll be using during your presentation. • Nothing worse than a video that won’t play at the crucial moment
#9 • Mind the Time • Don’t ramble or go off-book • Don’t speak too fast.
#10 • Practice! Practice! Practice! • You can’t practice too much – The more you practice the better you’ll know your topic and you’ll present more effectively. • Read it out loud to the mirror, to your mum, to the cat… • Learn it, so you can speak it, without sounding like you’re saying it by rote.
