No notes for slide
  • Do not fill your slide up with text. People came to the presentation to hear you speak, not read your slides and then hear you read them.
  • 1 in 5 children are physically abused. Use simple numbers and then you can describe what they mean. If you list all of the statistics, no one will listen to you.
  • Do not use transitions on every slide, and do not use the very elaborate ones.
  • They look crisp. Low quality graphics that are stretched look cheesy.
  • The audience has seen them before. Fresh, new backgrounds for slides will keep the audience engaged.
  • Do not put too much info into charts. Make it simple with as little data as possible.
  • Color evokes feelings, so people will stay engaged.
  • Fonts communicate subtle messages.
  • Videos give concrete examples.
  • You can see how your PowerPoint is progressing and can decide if any changes need to be made.
