    1. 1. An Introduction
    2. 2. Building a Good Presentation Before starting, consider: Who is my audience? What do I want to communicate? What is my BIG take-away message? How do I want to organize my presentation?

    10. 10. Common Mistakes If you’ve ever sat through a Power Point presentation, you might find that some people type all the words they’re going to say on the slide, and then they read them word for word. This is really not the point of Power Point, nor is it the point of any type of presentation! Plus, it’s really annoying to read all the words on the screen. Don’t you think so? Let me know if you disagree. It might help me make a better presentation in the future.
    11. 11. Common Mistakes • Using images to decorate your slide • Makes it look cluttered and unprofessional
    12. 12. Common Mistakes Silly transitions and animation—They look kind of…silly Remember your audience! Keep it professional, not distracting
    13. 13. And After
    14. 14.

    17. 17. Final Thoughts  Using contrasting colors instead of colors that are too similar Which of these are good ideas?  Writing exactly what you want to say on your slide  Practicing before your presentation  Using lots of pictures on every slide  Citing the sources of your images and information  Demonstrating information with graphs and photos  Using as many animations and transitions as humanly possible
