  • Tips to make a better presentation
    Will allow audience to think more and better focus on what you’re saying
  • Slides with busy pictures or too much text can distract from what you are saying
    The audience will focus on looking at the screen and not on the information you are presenting
    Do not use too much text and use simple picture to make your point
  • If there is too much text on a slide the audience will spend their time reading it and not listening
    If the information you are presenting is all on the slide then there is no need for you to be speaking, as the audience can just read it themselves
  • Too many transitions can be distracting and can take up too much time in a presentation
    They can also cause breaks that give enough time for the audience to lose attention
  • Using high quality images makes your presentation look cleaner and more put together
    Grainy images take away from the professionalism within your presentation
  • Using the same old designs the audience has seen time and time again is boring
    By using an original template, your presentation will be more memorable and engaging
  • Too much information on charts will only confuse the audience
    Make charts or graphs simple with only the essential information so everyone will be able to understand
  • Your presentation should be aesthetically pleasing as well
    Color, or lack there of, could help to get your message across and will engage the audience
    Too much color however, can be distraction so it is important to find a balance
  • Appropriate font is essential
    When choosing font and size you must make sure that it is not overpowering for those in front but as the same time, easily readable for those in the back
  • Using audio or video can bring your presentation to the next level
    It will certainly engage the audience and will also help bring across your message
  • When organizing your presentation the slides should follow the order in which you are presenting your information
    The order should be logical and follow a clear train of thought that the audience can follow
