21 TIPS FOR
CREATING A
PRESENTATION
BORING
START BY
DISQUALIFYING
YOURSELF
Eg: “I’m not exactly an
expert on this subject”
“I hope you don’t find
my presentation boring”
MAKE A LONG
Don’t be afraid to dedicate
10-15 minutes of your
Presentation to the
introduction before your
move on to your topic.
INTRODUCTION
READ FROM
Turn your back to
audience and read
from the slides. It
might make your
job as a presenter
easier.
YOUR SLIDES
SWINE FLU
AVOID HUMOR LIKE
There really is
nothing worse for your audience
than making them laugh.
They’re there to be subjected to
a painful experience, so
give them one
VISUALS
Visual aids are perfect for
turning even the dullest of
topics with tons of statistics
into an interesting presentation
SO DO NOT USE VISUALS
AVOID THE
USE OF
COMPLICATEDMAKE THINGS
Move from one point
to the next in an
illogical manner,
never come to an
overall conclusion
THE ICE
DO NOT BREAK
NEVER Crack jokes, Tug on their heart
strings, tell a personal story, Use
metaphors or draw comparisons
ANIMATE
Every slide, title, word, bullet
point, graphic,
and photo needs its
own unique animation.
Why do you think PowerPoint gives
you so many animation options?
ANIMATE
ANIMATE
EXTRAVAGANT
Use swirly and extravagant fonts,
as those will really get your point
across.
USE
FONTS
KILL YOUR
AUDIENCE
WITH BULLETS
Make every slide
look the same
(i.e. Title, Bullets;
Title, Bullets).
USE
TONS
GRAPHS WITH
OF DATA
Design data-centric slides
with numerous graphs
and tons of data
Do not conclude! Let
your audience draw
their own conclusions
USE TINY
HARD TO
READ
FONTS
Because your
audience will
most likely be
viewing your
presentation
from a
distance
MONOTONE
SPEAK
ONLY IN
Varying the pitch of
your voice wastes
valuable energy and
could possibly excite
your audience
REPEAT
It's important that your
audience understands
exactly where you're
coming from,
so tell them.
Over and over and over
EYE
This is a great way to let
your audience feel
disconnected from you
NEVER
MAKE
CONTACT
Moving around the
stage confidently and
gesticulating will only
keep your audience
engaged in what
you’re saying, and
that’s the LAST thing
you want to do.
IGNORE
YOUR
BODY
LANGUAGE
Once all the texts
are placed on the
slides, there is no
need to prepare for
your presentation
PRACTICE
DON’T
After all, they are the reason
why you had a sleepless night
and now you’re so nervous.
IGNORE
YOUR
AUDIENCE
FAST
TALK
TOO
You've got a lot of material to
cover, so you can talk fast to
get through all of it
ON TIMEDON’T FINISH
A little overtime never killed anybody
If You feel you don't have sufficient time to
communicate your important information,
you can request extra time to communicate it
