Effective PowerPoint Presentations Shirelle Thomas
What makes an effective PowerPoint Presentation? Not a lot of animations All your slides do not need to have an animation Have fun with your slides but not too much fun Limit Information You do not need to have every single word you are going to say on your slide Don’t bore your audience Color Scheme Use colors that are easy to read off of your chosen background Don’t blind your audience or make it hard to read
Summary Powerpoint is more visual than verbal: “a picture is worth a thousand words” The audience will take away the last thing you say Images should be good: not pixilated , out of focus, too dark Make graphs simple as possible
