Do’s and Don'ts? • Don'ts • Don't over do it - excessive details and data could negatively affect your presentation. • Distract your audience - with over use of graphics, animations or sounds. • Don’t use backgrounds or colors that conflict. Contrast is important. • Don’t speed through your presentation.
