  • Given are the main skills for verbal presentation and use of power-point and overheads.

  • Know your material thoroughly.
  • Put what you have to say in a logical sequence
  • Ensure your speech will be captivating to your audience as well as worth their time and attention.

  • Practice and rehearse your speech at home.
  • Practice on your family, friends or colleagues.
  • Use a tape-recorder and listen to yourself.
  • Videotape your presentation and analyze it.
  • Begin with something clear and engaging.
  • When you are presenting in front of an audience, how you are being perceived is very important.
  • Dress appropriately for the occasion.
  • Be solemn if your topic is serious.

general presentation points
General presentation points
  • Speak slowly, enunciate clearly, and show appropriate emotion and feeling relating to your topic.
  • Establish rapport with your audience.
  • Speak to the person farthest away from you to ensure your voice is loud enough to project to the back of the room.
  • Vary the tone of your voice and dramatize if necessary.
presenting using power point
Presenting using power point
  • Our brain can not absorb information verbally and visually at the same time.
  • Therefore, either listen or view but do not do both simultaneously.
  • A suggestion is use the slides for pictures that complement your presentation but while you are speaking, change to blank slides

  • Fonts
  • Graphics and Design
  • Colour
  • General Presentation
  • Select sans-serif fonts such as Arial or Helvetica. Avoid serif fonts such as Times New Roman or Palatino as they are sometimes more difficult to read.
  • Use no font size smaller than 24 point.
  • Clearly label each screen. Use a larger font (35-45 points) or different color for the title.
  • Use a single sans-serif font for most of the presentation. Use different colors, sizes and styles (bold, underline) for impact.
  • Avoid italicized fonts as they are difficult to read quickly.
  • No more than 6-8 words per line
  • For bullet points, use the 6 x 6 Rule. One thought per line with no more than 6 words per line and no more than 6 lines per slide
  • Use dark text on light background or light text on dark background. However, dark backgrounds sometimes make it difficult for some people to read the text.
  • Do not use all caps except for titles.
  • To test the font, stand back six feet from the monitor and see if you can read the slide.
graphics and design
Graphics and Design
  • Keep the background consistent and subtle.
  • Use only enough text when using charts or graphs to explain clearly label the graphic.
  • Keep the design clean and uncluttered. Leave empty space around the text and graphics
  • Use quality clipart and use it sparingly. The graphic should relate to and enhance the topic of the slide.
graphics and design11
Graphics and Design
  • Try to use the same style graphics throughout the presentation (e.g. cartoon, photographs)
  • Limit the number of graphics on each slide.
  • Check all graphics on a projection screen before the actual presentation.
  • Avoid flashy graphics and noisy animation effects unless they relate directly to the slide.
  • Limit the number of transitions used. It is often better to use only one so the audience knows what to expect.
  • Limit the number of colours on a single screen.
  • Bright colours make small objects and thin lines stand out. However, some vibrant colours are difficult to read when projected.
  • Use no more than four colours on one chart.
  • Check all colours on a projection screen before the actual presentation. They may project differently than what appears on the monitor.
general presentation
General Presentation
  • Check the spelling and grammar.
  • Do not read the presentation. Practice the presentation so you can speak from bullet points. The text should be a cue for the presenter rather than a message for the viewer.
  • Give a brief overview at the start. Then present the information. Finally review important points.
  • It is often more effective to have bulleted points appear one at a time so the audience listens to the presenter rather than reading the screen.

General Presentation
  • Use a wireless mouse or pick up the wired mouse so you can move around as you speak.
  • If sound effects are used, wait until the sound has finished before speaking.
  • If the content is complex, print out the slides so the audience can take notes.
  • Do not turn your back on the audience. Try to position the monitor so you can speak from it.
