  • When giving a presentation your audience must be clear on the purpose and what you want them to learn
  • Avoid stretching images that create pixilation, instead use high quality images related to your topic
  • When you use a lot of text your audience, your audience will be reading the slide and stop listening to you, Instead of overloading your slides with text use graphs and diagrams
  • It is not necessary to use all the space on the slide, open space is ok
  • Using dark colors as backgrounds visually strengthens your presentation while light colors makes things hard to read
  • Again, avoid overloading your slides with words. This way your audience will listen to you as there will not be much on the slide to read
  • Choose a font that is easy to read and understand
  • Less is more! No one is ever congratulated for giving a presentation that is complicated and cumbersome. Your audience will be turned off
  • Consistency is important because it makes your presentation easier to follow and understand
  • Your audience will only listen and absorb your message if they can read your text!
  • Your presentation should flow that your audience can easily follow
  • To optimize your delivery and story telling abilities, you need to practice your presentation
  • Powerpoint is a tool to aid you in delivering your message, don’t rely on it to tell the story
  • By having handouts available for the audience, you give them the opportunity to take notes and remember what you said
  • Effective presentations take the form of a story and as the storyteller you want to tell an exciting and engaging story
  • Make on impact on your audience by choosing your words wisely, make things simple
  • In an effort to engage your audience, keeping eye contact is important
  • Enthusiasm and energy is important when giving a presentation. When the presenter is enthusiastic is shows and makes the presentation better
  • One of the most important parts of a presentation is the tone and volume in which it is delivered. Be mindful!
  • Knowing your audience will allow you to optimize engagment
  • Enjoy being a facilitator, don’t take yourself too seriously
