Effective PowerPoint Presentations

It is easy to make a PowerPoint slide show; however, harder to make an effective presentation

why use powerpoint
Why Use PowerPoint
  • Overhead Transparencies will not work anymore in large auditoriums.
  • Imagine if your church or other organization used an overhead to make their points instead of PowerPoint.
  • PowerPoint allows you to interact with your audience, the Rocky Mountain Travel Association.

Effective PowerPoint Presentations
  • If your presentation is meaningful it will determine if your subjects will go to sleep or be involved in what you are saying.
  • I will look around the room to see how involved your travel agents are in this presentation
color scheme
Color Scheme
  • Light text on a dark background is most effective.
  • As long as you stick to this just make sure that your colors are pleasing.
  • Only change the scheme on certain slides that you want to emphasize. Such as a green background when you are referencing money.
  • In a business setting you would probably want to use the colors that the business has adopted, such as Coca-Cola Red.
too much information
Too Much Information!
  • Your PowerPoint presentation is an aid not the presentation in itself.
  • If you have a slide with more than five bullets include them in a new slide.
  • Make just major points with bullets your audience cannot read too much information from a slide, consider using handouts!
  • Never read from your presentation.
clip art
Clip Art
  • Use clip art to help make your points without having to explain them!
  • Be careful with animated gifs that might take away from what you are saying!
  • Try not to use the same clips several times in your presentation.
  • This does not apply to your logos--put these on the master slides to help reinforce your company’s image.
  • Try to customize your presentations by changing the color schemes, and making custom backgrounds.
  • If your audience sees a generic brand presentation they are less likely to pay attention to what you are saying.
  • You can purchase from an Office Supply store both new backgrounds and clip art.
  • When you use transitions, sounds, and custom animation use it sparingly.
  • Remember sound from your laptop may not have enough volume for everyone to hear it.
  • Remember some animation makes text harder to read.
  • There is nothing better than a presentation that is done professionally with only limited effects
Empty Space

Use it!

Empty Space adds impact!
