TIPS FOR CREATING A PROFESSIONAL POWERPOINT PRESENTATION
1. INTRO SLIDE:
• Title of presentation, date, presenter name
• Table of contents
2. OUTLINE SLIDE:
• Main points of what you will talk about
• Start broad, finish specific
• Rank Information (What NEEDS to go on the slide)
• Cite sources in each slide
3. CONTENT SLIDES:
• Cover detailed information based on your outline
• As many slides as you need, as many as 1-2 per minute
• Remember PowerPoint is more visual than verbal: “a picture is worth a thousand words”
• Cite sources in each slide
4. FINAL SLIDE:
Bibliography / Reference page
DIFFERENT TYPES OF SLIDES
• Highlight your presentation, don’t create a substitute for it
• Bullet points, not complete sentences
1. 4-6 points per page
• No large blocks of text, audience stops listening, and reads
• Consider showing one point at a time, using animation
1. helps the audience focus on what you are saying
• Avoid clip art… everyone has seen it before, lacks emphasis
• Images should be good: not pixilated, out of focus, too dark
• Cropped to remove distractions
• Make them as simple as possible
• To be grasped in just a few moments, not studied at length
DIFFERENT FORMATING TECHNIQUES
• Use a consistent background and layout for all slides
• The template sets the tone of your presentation so choose it carefully
• Avoid really bright backgrounds, or cluttered layouts
• Choose two at most, nothing cursive or ornamental
• Stick to sans-serif fonts, for legibility
• Minimum of 18 point, 20 to 24 is better
• Main points/titles should be bigger than sub-points/content
• High contrast dark on light, or light on dark
• Use color with care, to emphasize your talk
• Avoid extremely bright colors, hot pink, neon orange, acid green
• Do not combine red/green, yellow/purple, or blue/orange
• Use sparingly, and be consistent
• Avoid distracting or annoying sound effects
CHECK YOUR WORK:
• Check for spelling mistakes and grammatical errors
• Check for logic and the flow of information
• Try to test your presentation in the room before your talk
1. you may need to adjust the colors/templates/font size for the room/equipment
• Be prepared to give your talk without a PowerPoint slideshow
1. technical glitches do happen
TEN TIPS FOR A PROFESSIONAL PRESENTATION
1. Start with Your Speech – by creating your outline for your speech first, you can use the outline to develop your PowerPoint slides.
2. Presentation First, PowerPoint Second – PowerPoint is effective at providing supplementary information, BUT the focus should be on the presenter and what he/she has to say.
3. Know Your Audience – You’ll want to tailor your presentation based on a number of factors, like the current knowledge level your audience and how to engage them
4. Tell a Story – The goal of any presentation is to sell the audience on an idea.
5. Show It, Don’t Write It – Human beings are highly visual learners. It’s much easier for our brains to remember a strong, unique image than a series of facts and figures.
6. Embrace Color – Carefully! You want to use meaningful and memorable colors, but you don’t want to get too busy or flashy
7. Follow the 10/20 Rule – If you cannot show it in 10 slides and cannot present it in 20 minutes, changes are you will lose your audience.
8. Keep It Short – The second an audience gets bored and stops paying attention, the presentation loses its effectiveness. People not only stop processing new information, but begin to resent the presenter for wasting their time.
9. Keep It Legible – Text should be used at a minimum and for the purpose of letting the audience understand the main points of your presentation.
10. Practice, practice, practice – The secret to a professional PowerPoint presentation is YOU, so practice giving your presentation while stepping through the slides. Not only will you be more relaxed during the presentation, but you will not spend time moving back and forth through the slides because they were not organized to follow your presentation.
