powerpoint best practices
PowerPoint Best Practices
  • Keep bullet slides to a minimum. If you use bullet slides, keep the number of bullets to 3-5, and the content of each bullet brief – key phrases rather than sentences.
  • Image slides work great for a lot of content. A picture or just a picture with a couple of words in extremely large font will reinforce your story better than repeating what you are saying on a slide. You want the audience to listen to you tell the story, rather than read the slides. If they are reading the slides, they aren’t listening to you.
powerpoint best practices1
PowerPoint Best Practices
  • Don’t try and say too much on a slide. Keep it simple, and uncluttered. You don’t have to have a graphic representation for everything you are saying.
  • Do not use clip art.
  • Do not use a font smaller than 24, but ideally 28-30 is best.
  • Be consistent. Use only one kind of font in your presentation.
  • Be consistent. Use only the colors in the color palette set up for the template you are using.
powerpoint best practices2
PowerPoint Best Practices
  • Be consistent. Either use a period after every bullet point or not, but keep it the same throughout.
  • Be consistent. Use title-style capitalization for slide titles and sentence-style capitalization for bullets.
  • Treat images the same in the entire presentation. If you put a tan line around an image, with a shadow, do that for all images.
  • Don’t overuse “bells and whistles”, such as animation. Remember…content is King! If you are using animation, be consistent with the type you are using – less is more.
  • Do not use clip art. It’s worth saying twice.

Helpful PPT Notes
  • SmartArt
    • In short, PPT is not as sophisticated as we would expect an Adobe program to be.
      • If you take a SmartArt diagram from Presentation A and paste it into Presentation B the first step should be to click on the button that appears in the bottom right or left corner and select “keep source formatting” as we saw on the call, that doesn’t always work.
      • The next step would be to select the SmartArt, click on “design” under the SmartArt Tools tab, click on “design” subtab and then bring up the pre-formatted matrix by clicking on “Change Colors.” This will only work if you have set your template colors in the design tab and in the master.
      • The last resort would be to select each individual piece of the smart art, and under the SmartArt Tools tab, click on the “format” subtab and  select your colors from the “Shape Fill”  drop down menu.
      • Another point to note that the colors from Presentation A need to be in the same order as Presentation B for the cut/paste option to work exactly. Accent 1 in both color palettes need to match, etc.
  • Lock Document
    • Once you have gone through all revisions and approvals and you know your colleagues/clients will not need to edit the document you can click on the “Office Button”, from the dropdown menu select “Prepare”, then select “Mark as Final.” The PPT then cannot be modified.
    • Note that this doesn’t keep someone from “save as” a new document that they CAN modify.
