Creating a small presentation is a very tedious job for people. But after knowing these tips, you see the presentation making process as a very simple task and you will also enjoy that task.
These 8 easy and important tips will help you in making a simple and effective presentation:
1. Minimize the number of slides
Utilize less number of slides to keep up an unmistakable message and to keep your gathering of people mindful and intrigued.
2. Choose a font style that your audience can read from a distance
Picking the right text style (e.g., Helvetica or Arial) serves to convey the desired information. Maintain a strategic distance from tight textual styles (e.g., Arial Narrow) and stay away from text styles that incorporate extravagant edges (e.g., Times).
3. Keep your content basic by utilizing visual cues or short sentences
Use bullets or short sentences, and try to keep each to one line; i.e., without text wrapping.
You want your audience to listen to you present your information, rather than read the screen.
Some projectors crop slides at the edges, so long sentences may be cropped.
You can remove articles (such as “a” and “the”) to help reduce the word count on a line.
4. Use art to help convey your message
Use graphics to help tell your story. Don’t overwhelm your audience by adding too many graphics to a slide, however.
5. Make labels for charts and graphs understandable
Use only enough text to make label elements in a chart or graph comprehensible.
6. Make slide backgrounds subtle and keep them consistent
Choose an appealing, consistent template or theme that is not too eye-catching. You don’t want the background or design to detract from your message.
7. Use high contrast between background color and text color
Themes automatically set the contrast between a light background with dark colored text or dark background with light colored text.
8. Check the spelling and grammar
To earn and maintain the respect of your audience, always check the spelling and grammar in your presentation.
These tips are very helpful in converting a long & boring presentation into an short & effective presentation which will help you in building confidence.
