  • Less is more: A single, strong, graphic image or succinct line of text will tell your story better than a crowded collage or packed paragraph. Remember, people need to process everything you're saying while simultaneously absorbing your slides. Rather than one complex slide, show several slides, each with one idea, image or data point. Eliminate "headline and bullet-points" slides; they are tiring to read.
  • Text quantity: You rarely need more than six lines of text on a slide. Often, only a line or two will do. Sans-serif fonts (like Helvetica) are easier to read at a distance than serif fonts (like Times New Roman).
  • Text size: Your text should be large enough to be legible to the person sitting farthest from the stage or classroom setting.
  • Theme Development: Without good storytelling, your audience will probably fall asleep because nobody wants to hear the boring task of sense-making. With a good story, your audience will be alive and awake to hear what you love to do.
  • Resonate your Audience: Make your message seen and heard. Leave your audience remembering your talk, not forgetting it.
  • Save Time:Do not worry about designing the presentation and focus more on the content and what you’ll be talking about. Photo courtesy of Microsoft Clipart Gallery.
  • Present with Confidence: With a well designed presentation, you can focus on delivering a great presentation with confidence.
  • Slide background: A simple background keeps your text readable. If you are using a dark or black background, make the text bold.
  • Graphs, graphics and photos: Use visually arresting images, data and large words to serve as a mnemonic device so the audience has higher visual recall.
  • Volume and Emphasis: at a base level, you must be loud enough for everyone in the audience to hear you.
  • Rate: Know at what pace is comfortable for you to speak but do not speak very fast.
  • Eye Contact: eye contact serves several purposes for a speaker. First, culturally, we expect honest people to meet our eyes. Second, it allows the speaker to get feedback that they can use to modify their speech.
  • Practice: The more familiar you are with your material the more you will be able to inspire your audience’s trust and confidence.
  • Assert Yourself: Remember to match your physical behavior to the objectives underpinning your presentation.
  • Breathe:Always remember to breath steadily and deeply.
  • Humor: Use humor if you know you can and if you feel it is appropriate to do so.
  • Move away from the podium: Get closer to your audience by moving away from or in front of the podium. The podium is a barrier between you and the audience, but the goal of our presentation is to connect with the audience.
  • Be courteous, gracious, and professional: When audience members ask questions or give comments, you should be gracious and thank them for their input.
