  • 1. General ideas: presentation  Create a draft. Brainstorm your ideas before starting the Power Point presentation.  Ask yourself the “W” questions. What? Where? Why? When? Who?  Simplify the most important ideas you want the audience to know after the presentation.  Structure your message. Once your ideas are clear, write down key points, general contents and figure out resources you can need.  Few slides. Too many overloads people.
  • 2. General ideas: delivery  Power Point only gives support to your oral communication.  Talk to the audience and don’t turn your back to them.  Tell some stories, anecdotes or examples. You’ll create a comfortable atmosphere.  Remember the “B” key. The screen will go blank and you can explain better.  Give detailed handouts instead of Power Point copies. Remember that you’re the presentation!
  • 3. Design: template  Colors. Choose the most adequate template to your audience, but avoid: Shiny  Poor Bad contrast Textures Keep the background simple. Use templates with appropriate contrast and background. It is essential to make your text easy to read.
  • 4. Design: template  Keep the color scheme consistent. Repeat certain elements throughout your presentation.  Use different ones. You can find in:
  • 5. Design: text  Reduce the text on your slides to a minimum. Too much information distract the audience.  Add no more than 20 - 25 slides (or 15- 20, depending on the contents, time…)  Focus your information to a maximum of 5 key points or ideas.  Use short, simple and concise sentences.  Light background with dark text is better. Keep it simple!
  • 6. Design: font  Use a font large enough for easy reading in the back.  Arial, Tahoma and Times New Roman are advisable.  Use the most appropriates, but with different purposes.  Avoid capital letters. It’s harder for the people to understand.
  • 7. Design: graphs and diagrams  Make certain that you need them to enhance your message.  Explain your graphs, diagrams, conceptual maps or symbols.  Clear graphs help the audience to remember the main points. Confused Clear
  • 8. Design: graphs and diagrams Conceptual map (example)
  • 9. Design: pictures, photos  A picture is worth than a thousand words.  Narration with images is better than text alone.  Web resources:     Not too many pictures
  • 10. Design: Animation and clip arts  Clip arts are fun to use but only if they support or illustrate the key points.  Sometimes animations show lack of professionalism.  Two many on a page make it hard for the reader to keep the attention on the speaker.
  • 11.  Distract the audience. Even the builds (lines of text appearing each time you click the mouse).  Several effects and transitions runs can be distracting. Focus on your message, not the technology.  Leave the fade-ins, wipes, blinds and splits to science fiction movies.  Use video and audio when appropriate.
