Slides to accompany a 90-minute workshop on how to create effective presentations. Main points: prepare but establishing purpose, audience, good research and understanding your mode of communication; one key point per slide; use images to convey ideas not decorate slides; don't present masses of data as this will dilute your message; use stories; balance between inclusion of academic content and good visual presentation. Preparation and slide construction covered in slides. Presentation style only covered in face-to-face session. Originally presented by Matt Cornock and Juliet Koprowska as part of the SPSW PhD Seminar Series, 9 October 2013, University of York.

    • Colour Photo (cc-by) Creativity103.com
    • Yellow on white can only be described as an epic fail
    • Some colours are just plain offensive
    • White on black makes an impact …if a little serious
    • But the same rules apply, as ever. Adding too much text, or using the wrong formatting can seriously impede on the success of your slides and make them incomprehensible to your audience. Who want’s to read on screen a big block of squished up text, centre-aligned, when the presenter reads it out? Especially if there is a glaring typo distracting you.
    • beware the fancy templates
    • use a simple, neutral and professional design don’t lose your personality
    • Engage the audience Photo (cc-by) Matt Cornock
