  • 3. STBANK D Bank A Bank B Bank 18% 9% 7.3% 5% Top Spenders Advertising Expenses Use simple and direct methods for creating charts that are simple, direct, and focused. The charting feature of PowerPoint or Keynote restrict your creative freedom. Draw rectangles and text boxes instead and build your charts manually.

To further reduce clutter and make key data clearer, label only the key segments needed for the presentation. Use colours wisely.

Add an image if you need for further emphasis on selected information. Don’t worry if your slide looks bare and simple. It is a good thing.

Can the key information still be seen clearly with added details? Remember that less is more.

Think of ways to show complex information clearly on your presentation slides. Drawing charts using shapes is the best method to get what you want and how you want it shown.

  • 13. Sales of European cars! declining in Zombie Island 2009 2010 2011 Research by 4wheels Data, Inc. 2012 Japanese Korean European Line chart is a good way to show trend information. Do not pack your slide with too many lines. Draw your lines thick and clear so that they are easily seen. Use direct labels for your charts. Try not to use ‘legends’ if possible.

  • 15. Whose R.O.I.? 2008 2011 2014 20xx online searches ROI Using coloured background is okay. But make sure that there is good contrast between background and data you placed on your slide. Shapes in PowerPoint or Keynote can be quite powerful. Combine shapes to build icons to create pictorial charts that are exciting.

  • 17. Bread Others 75% 15% 10% Cookies What do people eat with their afternoon coffee? Chocolate Chips 43% Healthy Oats 28% Oreo 39% You can’t do this if you use the charting feature of PowerPoint and Keynote. Manipulate shapes and lines to create something different and exciting. Then add text, change text size and styles, and drag them to position. Watch your contrast and colour usage!

Some data are best presented horizontally. If you need to add descriptive text to individual chart data, then a horizontal presentation is more suited for this purpose. Try it and you’ll understand why.

Besides the x-y axis, the size of the bubble also represent another set of data. Can be confusing if you are not clear what you want to show. Again, be focused and decide what is the key information. Remember to start with clear objectives.
