4 strive to avoid tables of numbers
4 – Strive to Avoid Tables of Numbers.

  • Remember people see/remember trends more readily than numbers. So if possible use figures instead of tables.

  • Use both upper and lower cases letters.
  • On important points consider progressive disclosure.

  • Horizontal slides can be projected higher.

8- Be Consistent In the Style of Slides.
  • Consistency should include;
  • Background color,
  • Size and style of letters,
  • Choice of color to enhance message,
  • Style, so you can use slides for multiple talks.
9 organize the talk around the slides
9- Organize the Talk Around the Slides.
  • Decide what you’re important points are and design slides for those points.
  • Organize presentation around slides so as to form a theme.
  • Always ask the question, “Does this slide help make my point?”
  • Practice
10 keep slides simple
10- Keep Slides Simple.
  • Each slide should contain one main idea, two at the most.
  • The slides message should be deciphered by the crowd in a couple of seconds.
  • Simple slides permit the audience to focus on the presenter instead of trying to figure out the slide.
