Making A Good Presentation Great

4 simple things you can do to give your PowerPoint presentation more impact.

1. Use text boxes not bullet points
2. Use images and let the audience add the context
3. Write at 30pt font - if it doesn't fit, you've got way too much information there.
4. Use Smartart to demonstrate flow or simplify complex ideas.
5. Use one point per slide, make it simple, easy to understand and engaging and the audience will remember.
