      By: MichelleCorso
    • APPEARANCE
      Make sure there is contrast!
      Colors that aresimilarcan strain the eyes
      Keep the theme and word colors simple
      Having toomany colors can distract the audience
    • Do
      Pick readable font
      Keep font consistent
      It can be distracting tochange it constantly
      Align appropriately
      Misalignment can cause confusion
      DoN’t
      Use paragraphs. This can cause clutter on the screen and distract your audience.
      Write too much information. Keep it simple and speak about one thing at a time.
      Text
    • IMAGES
      But…
      You can…
      1) Use more images than text..
      2) Use images to reinforce your point..
      3) Give the audience a visual example…
      1) Use them carefully, it can distract audience.
      2) Don’t use them to decorate!
      3) Explain how it correlates with your text.
    • KISS!
      Keep It Straight and Simple
      K
      I
      S
      S
      Keywords only!
      No sentences!
      No paragraphs!
      Never read your slides!
      Learn your slides and speak freely!
    • ADDITIONAL FEATURES
      Transitions
      Keep it simple
      Too much can be distracting
      The faster the better-don’t keep the audience waiting!
      Know your audiences maturity level, plan accordingly
      Animations
      Use SPARINGLY
      You want audience to listen to the presenter, not watch the moving text!
      Its hard for the audience to read because they need to wait for the words to STOP in order to read.
    • SUMMARY
      KEEP IT SIMPLE
      Less is more
      Don’t clutter the slide, with images or text it can be distracting!
      KNOW YOUR PRESENTATION
      Do not read straight from the slides
      Use the PowerPoint to refer back to in order to reinforce your point, not to explain your position
      STAY FOCUSED
      Speak only about topics presented on your slides
      Allow audience to ask questions at the end of the presentation, not during!
