Tips for an Effective Presentation

Oral presentation skills can be learned by anyone, and will reflect positively on the

minute, to carefully and thoughtfully plan and prepare your presentation and above all:

  • Make sure your talk has a logical

flow of information.

  • Design a template, or use a standard template, for your presentation.
  • Standardize text, figures and colors.
  • Use the same symbol (shape and color) for similar data sets in different figures
  • Do not crowd slides with too much information.
  • Include only necessary information.
  • Content should be self-evident.
  • Be specific with the material you present.
  • Use data and figures as the basis for your discussion.
  • Be professional; avoid the use of slang, jargon, abbreviations and clichés.
  • Check grammar and spelling – nothing looks more unprofessional than grammar and spelling errors in a presentation.
background color
Background & Color
  • Use contrasting colors, but limit the use of color.
  • Text should appear clean and crisp.
  • Avoid nauseating combinations.
  • Avoid pastels – these washout on projection.
  • Minimize Glare.
  • Use dark background with light text – dark blue and green backgrounds are good.
  • Avoid multiple typefaces – use no more than 2.
  • Use bold and Italic strategically.
  • Use capital letters only as the first letter.
  • Determine the minimum font size by room size – the audience should be able to read comfortably from the back row.
  • Use font size to communicate importance; font size should be limited to the range 18-48pt.
amount of information
Amount of information
  • No more than 7 lines per slide.
  • No more than 7 words per line, less if a slide contains a figure.
  • Use bullets and key words.
  • When appropriate present information in graphical form rather than in tabular or in word form.
  • Include no more than two figures or graphics per slide.
  • Make figures big and bold.
  • Don’t assume the audience knows what they are seeing.
  • Explain key elements (components, axes, etc.)
  • Explain the significance, and how it relates to the point you are trying to make.

•Appropriate Dress

•Delivery and Mannerisms

  • Do not read your presentation from a set of notes, or worse, from the slide.
  • Talk to your audience, not to the slide.
  • If you are using a podium microphone, maintain a constant distance from the microphone.
  • Maintain eye contact with your audience, but do not focus exclusively on one or two persons.
  • Avoid a laser light show.
  • Learn to mask your nervousness.
  • Accept it
  • Know your subject
  • Recognize and accept the signs of nervousness—they’ll diminish as you proceed through your presentation
  • Remember that a certain degree of nervousness can be very positive in giving you the energy and drive you need for an enthusiastic presentation

Strange story of rubber


In midsummer of 1834 a bankrupt hardware merchant from Philadelphia, Charles Goodyear, walked into the New York retail store of the Roxbury India Rubber Co., America's first rubber manufacturer.


He showed Goodyear why: Rack on rack of rubber goods which had been melted to malodorous glue by the torrid weather


Goodyear was clapped into jail for debt. It was not his first sojourn there, nor his last

Was he successful?

Thomas Edison was famous for his following words,

‘Genius is one percent inspiration, 99 percent perspiration’.

bill gates
Bill Gates
  • Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about
  • eleven (11) things they did not and will not learn in school.
  • He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and
  • How this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

Rule 1:

Life is not fair - get used to it! Rule 2 :

The world doesn't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

bill gates cont1
Bill Gates Cont.

Rule 3 :

You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school.

You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.Rule 4 :

If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5:

Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity.

Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping:

They called it opportunity.Rule 6 :

If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault,

so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

bill gates cont3
Bill Gates Cont.

Rule 7:

Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. 

So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation,

try delousing the closet in your own room..

bill gates cont4
Bill Gates Cont.

Rule 8 :

Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer.

*This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

bill gates cont5
Bill Gates Cont.

Rule 9 :

Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. *Do that on your own time.Rule 10 :

Television is NOT real life.

In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

bill gates cont6
Bill Gates Cont.

Rule 11 :

Be nice to nerds.

Chances are you'll end up working for one..
