  • I think this is a good start. Remember to make your slides visually appealing without making them cluttered. Given your topic, you may want to make a couple slides that focus on one image (with no words except the title). You want the audience focusing on your voice, not on reading your slides, so image slides are fine since you would be discussing the images as you go along with your speech. You could even hyperlink to a video if you wish. And don’t forget a conclusion slide.
