PowerPoint Presentation Dos & Don’ts<br />• Face the audience when you are speaking. <br />• Use notes so you don’t have to keep looking at the screen behind you. <br />• Rehearse so you know what you’re going to say and how long it will take to say it.<br />• Use consistent colors and Layout throughout your presentation <br />• Ask the audience questions and invite them to ask you questions <br />• Know your subject so you can elaborate on points and answer questions <br />• Use eye contact to help keep your audience interested rather than spending the whole time looking at notes or the screen <br />• Read off the screen – use notes so you can face the class <br />• Say exactly what’s on the slides. The audiences are quite capable of reading it for themselves. The slides should summarize what you are talking about. <br />• Use text that is too small to be easily read by the audience <br />• Put too much text on each slide. Several points per slide should be all you need. There’s nothing wrong with covering a topic on more than one slide. <br />• Use too much animation, slide transitions and sounds. They can quickly go from impressive to annoying <br />• Rush your presentation – take your time instead. <br />
