A little organization will go a long way to enhancing your PowerPoint presentation. Your title slide should be catching and relevant to your audience – offer something in the title that your audience wants. Keep some basic principles in mind: Your slides should complement what you have to say, not say it for you. Keep slides direct and to the point - less is more! Choose a background color or design that enhances and complements your presentation rather than competes with it. Don’t get too fancy - a simple font, elegant color scheme and clear message is more important than lots of information (clutter!) on the slide. Keep it simple! The purpose of the PowerPoint slide is to keep the mind of your audience focused – fewer words are better.
Note: You understand that Microsoft does not endorse or control the content provided in the following presentation.
Be sure that major headings are always in the same font, size and color – this provides your audience with a visual cue to where they are in the presentation. Organize your thoughts before you start preparing your slides – too much mental clutter is as bad for your presentation as too much clutter on your slides. Use the Animation Schemes to add interest – here the ‘Fade’ entrance animation is used to gradually reveal content. Clarity is what your audience needs here so keep your message clear and focused.Keep your major slides brief – the slides are meant to summarize what you’re saying, not contain all your information.
Keep your presentation logical and be sure that one point flows to the next. If there are sub-points, add them with an additional slide. Make sure that when you move to a new main bullet point your audience knows where they are in the presentation. If you sense that you’re losing your audience – summarize what you’ve said and pick up the pace.
Watch your timing! Allocate a time for each slide and stick to it so as to keep track of your presentation and avoid speaking too much.
To illustrate your presentation and bring it to life use: Real-life stories. Recent news events. Strong and relevant anecdotes. Statistics that are relevant and not overwhelming – be careful of filling a slide with figures that can’t be read or quickly understood.
Consider sub-headings that provide an emotional or action-oriented aspect to your presentation – these can be very motivating to an audience.
Make a natural segue to the next slide so that your presentation flows naturally. The gradual reveal of your points serves to keep anticipation up and enables you to flow naturally to the next point.
Note: Level one text on the Title and Content layout used by this slide contains no bullet. To demote your text to level two, which is the bulleted text level shown on this slide, on the Home tab, under Paragraph, click Increase Indent.
Have a summary slide of your presentation – state it succinctly in a way that wraps your presentation. Use the ‘Fade in and dim’ animation – this keeps focus on the major summary heading but still allows you to talk about summary points. Three important steps in wrapping your presentation: Thank your audience for taking part in the presentation. Call for questions, making it clear how many questions you’ll take or how long question time will last. Encourage the audience to take what they’ve learned in the presentation and apply it to their situation directly.
If you’re presenting to an audience, the final slide should include: Your contact information. Publications relevant to your presentation and of interest to the audience. Other relevant information for the audience to follow up if interested. Keep this slide on screen while the audience disperses.
