Presentation Guidelines The key to a good presentation is developing well organized, clear, and professional looking slides. Slide layout, font, color scheme, and slide content are the main components to developing a great presentation. Use no more than six bullet points per slide.
Minimize the number of fonts used in your presentation. Keep font sizes consistent. Don’t type in all caps. Keep bullet points short and to the point. Incomplete sentences are OK. For contrast, use a light colored font on a dark background and vice versa. Use bold formatting to make appropriate words stand out.
•Minimize use of italics. They are moredifficult to read.•Do not vary the look of one slide greatlyfrom the next.• Consistency is the key.• Keep it simple.
Keep your objects Big. Make your information Clear. Limit the number of slides 3 slides per minute is the maximum
Run your presentation from a hard disk rather than from removable media. Communication is the key. Use Text to support the communication. Use Pictures to simplify complex concepts. Use Animations for complex relationships. Use Visuals to support, not to distract. Use Sounds only when absolutely necessary.
Practice moving between slides. Don’t read from your slides. Don’t speak to your slides. Be prepared for technical difficulties Avoid the use of flashy transitions.

Complementary ColorsThe following list describes the three secondary colors and their complementary primary colors: Purple (blue and red) goes with yellow. Green (yellow and blue) goes with red. Orange (yellow and red) goes with blue.
