  21. PowerPoint Rules How to Make Your Presentations Professional

  22. Avoid Text Overload Having too much text on the screen can defeat the purpose of using PowerPoint. The slides begin to look like a jumble of text, making slides difficult to read and unrecognizable from each other. People will either try to read everything or copy everything down or they will lose interest. List only the key points. If you have more info to include use more slides or create handouts.

  23. Avoid Text Overload • Use bulleted points • Use concise wording • Only include the main points; presenter should elaborate • Basic guideline: 6 points per slide, 6 words per point

  24. Font Choices • Stick to 2 or 3 fonts • Sans-serif fonts for on-screen presentations • Leave decorative fonts for titles • Keep size consistent • Use large font size (minimum 18 pt) • Avoid italics; hard to read • Use bold to emphasize words

  25. Capitalization • AVOID ALL CAPS…it is hard to read! • Capitalize the first word of each point • Avoid periods at the end of points

  26. Keep It Balanced • Don’t center bullet points • Text is ragged and hard to read • Left-justify bullet points • Keeps it neat and easy to follow

  27. Keep It Balanced • Avoid centering graphics on the slide • Place graphics beside text • Leaves more room for text • Pleasing to the eye • Better balance

  28. Backgrounds • Use contrasting colours • Light colours on a dark background • Dark colours on a light background • Use a single background in a professional presentation • Avoid using PowerPoint’s templates; make your slideshows original!

  29. Graphics • Use graphics to enhance your presentation • Do not let them distract from your presentation

  30. Animation & Sound • Use “builds” – show one point at a time • Stick to one type of slide transition • Stick to one type of animation • Use one type of slide transition • Do not overuse sounds

  31. The KYSS Rule • Keep Your Slides Simple • This is the main rule of PowerPoint slideshows
