  • When to Distribute?Decide when the mostappropriate time to distributethem to the audience.If the audience has a handout,it’s demanding attention.
  • Integrate into PresentationRefer to them in yourpresentation.No handout stands on its own.
  • Presentation Slides
  • Size of InformationMust be legible to the people in theback of the room (font-size, size ofvisuals, complexity, etc).
  • Do not read your slides.Use phrases or images.Explain your slides.Use your slides as examples ofthe point you’re trying to make.
  • Part, not the WholeDo not make your slides theentirety of your presentation.Slides make presentersdisappear.Make slides a part of yourpresentation.
  • VisualsDon’t use clip art.Avoid obviously ―stock‖photographs unless especiallyeffective.

  • Who’s in Charge Here?Don’t present your slides.Make sure the slides augmentyour presentation.Don’t depend on your slide toremember ―what comes next.‖
  • Other Presentation Aids
  • “Pass-Arounds”Generally not a good idea.Only one or two people canexperience the item when you’reactually referring to it – all theother times, it is a distraction.Consider effective alternatives.
  • Demonstrationsconsider using people from theaudience, make sure theoutcome is predictable or thatyou can handle the possibleresults, practice.
  • Food?Important to ask the question:―What does this accomplish?‖ or―How does this help?‖Make sure it’s directly andexplicitly practical to youraudience.Limit audience time with food.
  • Help a Slide OutNo presentation aid—whether aslide, a video, a sound clip, andimage, a handout, etc.—nopresentation aid stands on itsown.You’ve got to introduce it, referto it, and make it practical.
  • Thanks.
