Keep slides simple with large images and short phrases that can be read in the back of the room.
Elaborate on points written in short phrases and few bullet points. Writing a full paragraph will be distracting to your audience.
Fancy transitions take time and take away from the professionalism of your presentation, as well as ditract your audience.
Graphics will be stretch across large screens and may become blurry if they are low quality.
Themes can be helpful but default themes show the lack of effort and uniqueness of your presentation.
Charts can be very useful when trying to give a visual explanation, but if they are too complex or too small they become a distraction and irrelevant.
Color is important because some colors may be distracting while other colors may blend together and prevent your audience from being able to read your slides.
Fronts need to be large enough to be read, an appropriate color, and not too fancy. Otherwise fonts will become distracting to your audience because they will be more focused on the different letters than the meaning of the text or what you are saying.
Video and audio help to capture and keep an audience’s attention. When you read straight off the slide or even just speak the entire time, the audience is likely to lose focus easily.
The order of your slides matter because you want your presentation points to flow into one another so that your audience can easily follow your ideas.
