Templates

0

  • Use templates to add some “pizzazz” to your presentations.

  • Use carefully! Watch out for “style over substance.”

  • Make sure template is appropriate to your subject and to your audience.

  • You can also create your own template to reuse in future presentations.

For presentations/slides, use light text on a dark background

For handouts/transparencies, use dark text on a light background

  • Text can “fly in” from any direction.

  • Text can appear letter-by-letter...

  • Or, word-by-word.

Transitions

Transitions

  • Transitions affect an entire slide

  • Use them with a single slide for emphasis...

  • Or with an entire presentation for “polish”, especially if the presentation is destined for a kiosk or other unattended display

Presentation tips

Presentation Tips

0

  • Do NOT read every word from every line of every slide. BORING!!!!

  • Practice your entire presentation several times, either alone or with an audience.

  • Time yourself (2 minutes per slide) – adjust as necessary.

  • If possible, visit the room where you’ll be presenting beforehand.

  • Have a glass of water handy for when your throat gets dry.

More Tips

  • Slowdown your rate of speech and avoid distracting gestures or speech patterns

  • Make eye-contact with your audience and avoid turning your back on your audience if possible.

  • If using a laser pointer, don’t wiggle it around – ANNOYING!!! In fact, try not to use one at all.

  • Darken the screen during long pauses.

  • Clear a slide after discussing it.

  • Never say “I hope I haven’t bored you today” or something similar.

Final Thoughts

Good content makes a good presentation.

  • Is PowerPoint the best tool for my presentation?

  • Is a presentation even necessary? Would a short meeting or written report work better?

  • For technical or statistical data, consider a handout instead of, or in addition to a presentation.
