Slide structure good l.jpg

Slide Structure – Good

  • Use 1-2 slides per minute of your presentation

  • Write in point form, not complete sentences

  • Include 4-5 points per slide

  • Avoid wordiness - use key words and phrases only

www.erappa.org


Slide structure bad l.jpg

Slide Structure - Bad

  • This page contains too many words for a presentation slide. It is not written in point form, making it difficult both for your audience to read and for you to present each point. Although there are exactly the same number of points on this slide as the previous slide, it looks much more complicated. In short, your audience will spend too much time trying to read this paragraph instead of listening to you.

Slide Structure – Good

  • Show one point at a time:

    • Helps your audience concentrate on what you are saying

    • Keeps the audience from reading ahead

    • Helps you keep your presentation focused
