  18. 19. Outline <ul><li>Make your 1 st or 2 nd slide an outline of your presentation </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: previous slide </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Follow the order of your outline for the rest of the presentation </li></ul><ul><li>Only place main points on the outline slide </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: Use the titles of each slide as main points </li></ul></ul>
  19. 20. Slide Structure – Good <ul><li>Use 1-2 slides per minute of your presentation </li></ul><ul><li>Write in point form, not complete sentences </li></ul><ul><li>Include 4-5 points per slide </li></ul><ul><li>Avoid wordiness: use key words and phrases only </li></ul>
  20. 21. Slide Structure - Bad <ul><li>This page contains too many words for a presentation slide. It is not written in point form, making it difficult both for your audience to read and for you to present each point. Although there are exactly the same number of points on this slide as the previous slide, it looks much more complicated. In short, your audience will spend too much time trying to read this paragraph instead of listening to you. </li></ul>
  21. 22. Slide Structure – Good <ul><li>Show one point at a time: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Will help audience concentrate on what you are saying </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Will prevent audience from reading ahead </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Will help you keep your presentation focused </li></ul></ul>
  22. 23. Slide Structure - Bad <ul><li>Do not use distracting animation </li></ul><ul><li>Do not go overboard with the animation </li></ul><ul><li>Be consistent with the animation that you use </li></ul>
  23. 24. Fonts - Good <ul><li>Use at least an 18-point font </li></ul><ul><li>Use different size fonts for main points and secondary points </li></ul><ul><ul><li>this font is 24-point, the main point font is 28-point, and the title font is 36-point </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Use a standard font like Times New Roman or Arial </li></ul>
  24. 25. Fonts - Bad <ul><li>If you use a small font, your audience won’t be able to read what you have written </li></ul><ul><li>CAPITALIZE ONLY WHEN NECESSARY. IT IS DIFFICULT TO READ </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t use a complicated font </li></ul>
  25. 26. Colour - Good <ul><li>Use a colour of font that contrasts sharply with the background </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: blue font on white background </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Use colour to reinforce the logic of your structure </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: light blue title and dark blue text </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Use colour to emphasize a point </li></ul><ul><ul><li>But only use this occasionally </li></ul></ul>
  26. 27. Colour - Bad <ul><li>Using a font colour that does not contrast with the background colour is hard to read </li></ul><ul><li>Using colour for decoration is distracting and annoying . </li></ul><ul><li>Using a different colour for each point is unnecessary </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Using a different colour for secondary points is also unnecessary </li></ul></ul><ul><li>T r y i n g t o b e c r e a t i v e c a n a l s o b e b a d </li></ul>
  27. 28. Background - Good <ul><li>Use backgrounds such as this one that are attractive but simple </li></ul><ul><li>Use backgrounds which are light </li></ul><ul><li>Use the same background consistently throughout your presentation </li></ul>

  30. 31. Graphs - Bad
  31. 32. Graphs - Good
  32. 33. Graphs - Bad
  33. 34. Graphs - Bad <ul><li>Minor gridlines are unnecessary </li></ul><ul><li>Font is too small </li></ul><ul><li>Colors are illogical </li></ul><ul><li>Title is missing </li></ul><ul><li>Shading is distracting </li></ul>

  36. 37. Questions? <ul><li>End your presentation with a simple question slide to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Invite your audience to ask questions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide a visual aid during question period </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Avoid ending a presentation abruptly </li></ul></ul>
