How to Give a Powerful Presentation By: Jenna Garey
Be Consistent • Keep the learner interested • Don’t distract your audience with crazy template designs • Don’t go off topic • Use visuals to keep learners on point with your topic but don’t get crazy.
Use Your Tools • Power point has multiple tools such as : • Font/size/color • Bullets • Clip Art/Pictures • Slide Themes • Smart Art Graphics/Tables • Spacing/ Paragraph Format • Don’t be afraid to use them
Rules for Text & Graphics • 1. Use plain text, don’t write with CAPS for your whole slide, its tires the eye. • 2. Font color needs to easy to read. • 3. Use bold and italics sparingly. • 4. Leave some “white” space. • 5. Effects should not be over done. Use the same one.
Cut Out the Unnecessary • Cut out the adjectives you want to be clear. • As the speaker you can fill in the rest of the information. • Chop out all information that is not relevant.
Templates • All content pages should be the same, except the Title page • Inconsistent slides distract the learner from your message. • Stick with one theme or create your own template using the tools discussed earlier
