  • Ten Tips for slides in a presentation
  • Leave Plenty of “white” or “negative” spaceYour message will be more powerful if you have less clutter on the slide.
  • Too many words or points on one slide make the presentation boring. People will be less likely listen to you if they are reading the slideThe slides are meant to support the narration of the speaker, not to make the unnecessary
  • Use animation such as builds and slide transitions sparinglySome animation is good, but make sure it is more subtle and professional
  • Avoid using PowerPoint Clip Art or other cartoons because they can come off as cheesy
  • The templates in PowerPoint have been seen by your audience many times beforeMake something unique and new to impress your audience
  • Include appropriate charts and graphs that clearly portray your dataUseful charts include pie charts, vertical bar charts, horizontal bar charts, and line charts.
  • Color is emotional and evokes feelingsUsing the right color can help to persuade and motivate your audienceIn a dark room, a dark background with white or light text is useful.In a light room, a white or light background with dark text works better
  • Use the same font set throughout your whole presentation, and use no more than two complementary fontsSerif fonts are designed to be used in documents with a large amount of textSan Serif fonts are best for PowerPoint presentationsDo not use Helvetica fontMake sure the text can be read from the back of a room
  • Video or Audio clips can be used to illustrate your point betterAvoid the cheesy sound effects in PowerPoint
  • Use the slide sorter view so that you can see how the logical flow of your presentation is progressing.This view allows you to see extraneous information
