  • This presentation will help you make a presentation with the correct Design and Delivery
  • Be loud enough so that your audience can hear you. (Reference 5)
  • Use visuals to grab their attention
  • Don’t use templates. Everyone has already seen them
  • Use color correctly. Do not use colors that do not correspond with each other
  • Do not use multiple fonts on slides. Pick a font that is legible, and stick with it
  • Limit how much you put on each slide. White space is not necessarily a bad thing
  • Do not use a lot of animations. They may be too distracting to your audience
  • Use high quality pictures, clip art does not look good. Only use it when you are trying to prove a point about clip art like I am doing here
  • Try to not put too many bullet points on one slide. If there are too many, people may not want to listen
  • Go over your presentation before you deliver it to the audience.
  • Make sure that you test the technology before you actually use it.
  • Make eye contact with the audience. You are presenting to the audience, not the floor, not the wall or the board. Make it so they are engaged
  • Humor goes far. It will keep your audience engaged in what you are saying
  • Everyone gets nervous at some point. But try not to speed up or slow down. Stay at a constant speed and tone for the audience to follow
  • Do not go on for too long. Your audience will eventually get bored and will not pay attention to anything you say. And if you say it will take a certain amount of time, the audience will become frazzled and disoriented if you go over the amount of time you said you would take
  • If you do not know something, then admit it. People would rather have honesty than someone making stuff up
  • Be enthusiastic about the topic. It will make the audience more into the presentation
