  • Hello Barbara. I am on a Mac and do not know if it is me as a user or from www.slideshare.net. I am now on the 8:00 minute mark and the first slide has not been forwarded. I tried to move forward in and your audio stopped completely. I then tried to forward the time with my mouse and I was unable to move forward that way. Each time I stopped, your audio started all over again. I am now leaving at 10:00 minute mark still on slide 1. Any suggestions? Thank you, Holly

    • Simple color schemes 3 or 4 colors maximum
    • Simple backgrounds Be wary of templates, transitions, and animations
  • 10. This is Very Important Stuff
    • I know you can’t read this, but I wanted you to see it because it effectively illustrates the point that your point may be very important, but if your audience can’t interpret the visual, they will be distracted by the attempt, and will probably not be giving you the complete attention that you so rightly deserve.
    • You also want to keep the volume of text to a minimum, as it will help make your points more effectively.
    • Think of your visuals as an outline, highlighting your major points as opposed to running on and on, thus forcing your audience to choose between listening to you or attempting to read your hopelessly over crowded visuals.
    • Remember, when a slide is already filled with too much information, you might as well pack in all the additional material you can, even if it really doesn’t help the presentation.
