Tips for Planning Great Slides Use slides sparingly. Avoid the overuse of slides or unnecessary slides. Make slide pictorial. Graphs, flowcharts, etc., all give the viewer an insight that would otherwise require many words. Make text and numbers legible. Minimum font size for most room set-ups is 20 pt. Make pictures and diagrams easy to see.

In advance of your presentation Practice – a lot . Don’t just think your presentation through : act it out, in front of friends, or family. Time each section of your presentation and develop a schedule. Memorize the first two minutes of your presentation, so you breeze on through the time when the butterflies are most active.

Dealing with Disasters You find out that the time allotted has been reduced. At the very worse, you can make your points, support the with the essentials, ask and answer the most likely questions on your list. The slide equipment fails . You know then saying, “The show must go on”. Apologize to the audience and then add something like “Now return with me to a distant past, before Powerpoint, when all we had for presentations was our notes and perhaps a blackboard or flipcharts.” Then, make the most of your primitive tools.

Dealing with Disasters You tell a joke that falls flat. Ouch! Just shrug your shoulders and apologize: “I am sorry. I got that joke at a Henry Youngman clearance sale.” (You can choose your own comedian). You get nervous and flustered and lose track of where you are . Figure out where you are from your slides and notes. If you can’t, just be honest : “My brain has derailed. Who can back me up so I can the on the track again?”
