POWERPOINT PRESENTATION
DON‟Ts
YOUR BEST TO REMEMBER THE
FOLLOWING…
DO
Choose Serif fonts like
Times New Roman
They are harder to read on a screen
Use san-serif fonts like
Ariel, Gil Sans, or Century Gothic
They are easier on the eye
DO
Underline words for emphasis
People mistake these for
hyperlinks and
they are harder to read.
Vary a font‟s size, or color
for
or group words together *
DO
*Butavoiddoingitallononeslide
Use visually complex fonts
Especially a variety of them
Choose easy to read fonts
&
Stay in a font family
DO
Use fonts that are smaller than
24 points
Any smaller and it can‟t be read easily from a distance
Back up about 2 feet
Watch your presentation
See if you can read everything
DO
with every new slide
Overload
the
viewer
Change
colors
Choose a color palette & layout style
And stick with it
DO
Fill up the screen with lots and lots information
written in sentence form. Or even bullet after bullet
after bullet. The visuals in your presentation should
help guide your speaking, not replace it. People
can read faster than they can speak, and they
don‟t want to hear you just read from the slides.
Plus, the more you put on a slide, the smaller the
text will get and the smaller the text gets, the
harder it is to read. Then, you will annoy your
audience as they try to follow along, but falter in
their attempts. An annoyed audience is not a
happy audience and an unhappy audience won‟t
really give you the attention your hard and
carefully researched presentation deserves. In
other words, did you really read all of this? Would
you expect your audience to?
Choose only key points to highlight
Follow a 7 words / 6 lines guideline
Make every slide matter
DO
Use visually complex
backgrounds
Use backgrounds that don‟t
compete with the message
Go crazy with sound effects
and animations*
*Imagine many things spinning
& whizzing around on the page
Change the pace by adding
relevant video and website links*
DO
*Just make sure you‟ve loaded
those pages ahead of time
Include werds that are spellled
incorractly
Include incorrect information
Check your spelling
Proofread each slide
Make sure all information is correct
DO
Overload slides with images
Copy and paste images from
the Internet
Choose images
that match
your message
DO
p.s. That„s jazz great
Dizzy Gillespie looking
for the right picture
Simply read off the screen
Practice ahead of time
Make notes for reference
Look at the audience
DO
Forget to review
your main points
Choose easy to
read fonts &
backgrounds
Follow the same
color scheme &
layout
throughout
Use animation,
sound, & images
with care
Proofread and
spellcheck each
slide
Review your
slideshow from a
distance &
practice
Credit your
sources
Web Resources
Credit your sources*
1. Colourlovers.com –
great for finding
color palettes
2. Flickr.com –
find free images
open to public use
3. Slideshare.net –
see how others
approach the same
idea
DO
*Images can be sited throughout the presentation or
on the very last slide

Tips for Effective Presentations

  • 2. YOUR BEST TO REMEMBER THE FOLLOWING… DO
  • 3. Choose Serif fonts like Times New Roman They are harder to read on a screen
  • 4. Use san-serif fonts like Ariel, Gil Sans, or Century Gothic They are easier on the eye DO
  • 5. Underline words for emphasis People mistake these for hyperlinks and they are harder to read.
  • 6. Vary a font‟s size, or color for or group words together * DO *Butavoiddoingitallononeslide
  • 7. Use visually complex fonts Especially a variety of them
  • 8. Choose easy to read fonts & Stay in a font family DO
  • 9. Use fonts that are smaller than 24 points Any smaller and it can‟t be read easily from a distance
  • 10. Back up about 2 feet Watch your presentation See if you can read everything DO
  • 11. with every new slide Overload the viewer Change colors
  • 12. Choose a color palette & layout style And stick with it DO
  • 13. Fill up the screen with lots and lots information written in sentence form. Or even bullet after bullet after bullet. The visuals in your presentation should help guide your speaking, not replace it. People can read faster than they can speak, and they don‟t want to hear you just read from the slides. Plus, the more you put on a slide, the smaller the text will get and the smaller the text gets, the harder it is to read. Then, you will annoy your audience as they try to follow along, but falter in their attempts. An annoyed audience is not a happy audience and an unhappy audience won‟t really give you the attention your hard and carefully researched presentation deserves. In other words, did you really read all of this? Would you expect your audience to?
  • 14. Choose only key points to highlight Follow a 7 words / 6 lines guideline Make every slide matter DO
  • 16. Use backgrounds that don‟t compete with the message
  • 17. Go crazy with sound effects and animations* *Imagine many things spinning & whizzing around on the page
  • 18. Change the pace by adding relevant video and website links* DO *Just make sure you‟ve loaded those pages ahead of time
  • 19. Include werds that are spellled incorractly Include incorrect information
  • 20. Check your spelling Proofread each slide Make sure all information is correct DO
  • 21. Overload slides with images Copy and paste images from the Internet
  • 22. Choose images that match your message DO p.s. That„s jazz great Dizzy Gillespie looking for the right picture
  • 23. Simply read off the screen
  • 24. Practice ahead of time Make notes for reference Look at the audience DO
