How to make a terrible presentation

  1. 1. How To Make A Terrible Presentation<br />A STEP BY STEP GUIDE<br />By:<br />
  2. 2. Agenda<br />Creating an Agenda<br />Using a template to give your presentation credibility<br />Adding too much meaningless content <br />Advanced presentation tips<br />Summarizing the content<br />Asking for Questions<br />
  3. 3. Creating An Agenda<br />Always, always, always include an agenda<br />If people don’t know what your going to tell them, they won’t know what they are about to not listen too!<br />Probably a good place for a random clock <br />Reminds audience that this is going to suck<br />More on clipart later<br />Make sure to include items such as “Conclusion” on your agenda<br />
  4. 4. Using a Template<br />Templates give your slides “pizzazz” as the Germans like to say<br />Microsoft is well known for some of the best templates ever<br />It takes the hard part of picking nice looking colors out of the mix<br />Don’t be afraid to stray from the template, think of it as a guide more than “rules”<br />Try center justification!<br />Try a different Font<br />Change your FONT size and color liberally!<br />MARGIN SMARGIN!<br />
  5. 5. Adding YOUR CONTENT<br />Don’t forget that you will certainly print these slides out and give them to your audience in a binder.<br />The idea is to put lots of color so it looks very “artsy” and stuff.<br />
  6. 6. When Putting in Graphs:<br />Don’t forget this will be on a projector, which is huge! Small numbers will become sometimes 3 feet tall! So keep everything small! <br />Graphs also give your data more credibility, regardless if they have meaning or not.<br />
  7. 7. Gradients<br />Gradients are another big attention getter<br />Nothing says “I am a black belt at using PowerPoint” like a random gradient<br />
  8. 8. The importance of Animations<br />Anyone can create a simple powerpoint and its not that hard to use a template.<br />To really set your powerpoint apart you need <br />[DRUMROLL]<br />ANIMATIONS!!!!!!!!!<br />
  9. 9. Creating A Conclusion<br />A conclusion really wraps up your presentation<br />This will allow for you to tell all the sleepers who just woke up what you just talked about<br />Can’t let them off that easily!<br />
  10. 10. Answering Questions<br />Questions should be held until the end<br />Create a slide that says: Questions? Maybe include a question mark art<br />When you don’t know the answer just make something up? If they realize what your doing just say ill talk to you after<br />
  11. 11. Conclusion<br />Put a lot of content on each page<br />Go wild and be liberal with templates!<br />The more effects and colors = more respect<br />At least one piece of clipart per page<br />Animations = powerpoint domination<br />Follow the agenda, content, conclusion, questions rule to avoid surprising your audience<br />Be sure to print out slides for future reference, it is always appreciated by your audience who will never throw it away!<br />
