    2. 2. Compose Slides• Do not copy/paste• Simple design – no distractors• Easy to read font• Allow room for images• Decorate selectively• Message not restricted by design
    3. 3. Be Consistent• Same font• Same font size• Match colors• Same design
    4. 4. Use Contrast• Black text on white background = good, but boring• Keep good contrast so text is easy to read
    5. 5. Apply Brilliance• Use color to highlight your message• Do not use too many colors at once• Match colors for design and good contrast(carefully!)
    6. 6. K.I.S.S.• Keep It Straight and Simple• Keywords only• No sentences!!• Never read your slides – talkfreely
    7. 7. Take Home Message• Always have a message• The point of thepresentation• A summary• Make it a highlight –stand out
    8. 8. Images• Should be relevant• Not for decoration• Reinforce or complement the message• Visualization and explanation• Can say more than a thousand words

    12. 12. Back up• Save to more than one location• Save as you go – constantly• Be prepared for problems
    13. 13. PowerPoint Final Reminders• Is not the main focus• Should provide aid in making the point• Visual clues• Facilitator makes the point• Check your PowerPoint• Stand alone presentation = rework it• Offers visual aid to make point = keep it
