  • 1. Bite Idea 005 Highlight to create focusThursday, 7 March, 13
  • 2. Highlighting  key  information  in  presentation  visuals  are   important  as  it  guides  the  audience  to  focus  on  a  speci7ic  area   or  content  during  your  presentation  delivery.  This  eliminates   the  need  for  your  audience  to  search  for  information  that  is   buried  among  the  sea  of  other  information  that  you  might  have   included  in  your  presentation. Information  to  highlight  can  be  an  image,  words,  a  sentence,   part  of  a  chart  or  part  of  a  diagram.  This  also  helps  you,  the   presenter,  to  immediately  identify  key  information  during  your   presentation  delivery  and  allows  you  to  get  straight  to  the   point. Identify  which  information  is  key  then  apply  one  of  these   highlighting  methods. Lets  take  a  look  at  some  examples  below.Thursday, 7 March, 13
  • 3. Before. At times you might need to extract a lengthy paragraph or two from a policy or legal document to display on your presentation slide. You cant summarise or reword it because doing so might alter the meaning.Thursday, 7 March, 13
  • 4. Before NIH Policy #63 The  Director  of  the  National  Institutes  of   Health  shall  require  that  all  investigators   funded  by  the  NIH  submit  or  have  submitted   for  them  to  the  National  Library  of  Medicine’s   PubMed  Central  an  electronic  version  of  their   7inal,  peer-­‐reviewed  manuscripts  upon   acceptance  for  publication,  to  be  made  publicly   available  no  later  than  12  months  after  the   of7icial  date  of  publication:  Provided,  That  the   NIH  shall  implement  the  public  access  policy  in   a  manner  consistent  with  copyright  law.Thursday, 7 March, 13
  • 5. After. An effective method to bring your audience to key information embedded in paragraphs of text is to use a highlighter effect on the key information. This can be achieved easily using the highlighter tool on PowerPoint or just draw a coloured rectangle box behind the key information.Thursday, 7 March, 13

  • 17. Before. This slide shows images of various serving techniques in tennis. The images are position neatly on the slide and is a good overview slide. If the presentation is going to elaborate on each individual image then we need to ensure that the image in question is highlighted.Thursday, 7 March, 13

  • 19. After. In this example, we use sizing to create the highlight for the selected image. Enlarge the image in question. At the same time we reduce the contrast of the other images in the background so that they are less visible. This is achievable in PowerPoint by reducing the transparency level of these background images.Thursday, 7 March, 13
