  2. Today’s Goals • Awareness of general design guidelines • Tips for effective presentations • Examine some PowerPoint techniques

  3. Why PowerPoint? • Strictly Verbal Presentation • 10% retention rate • Verbal and Visual • 53% of what audience learns is from graphics • 67% of presenters meet goals when using visuals • Only 37% meet goals when not using visuals

  4. General Design Tips • Use dark background with light text • Use 2-3 fonts at most • Use 2-3 colors at most • Look at your slides in black & white • Good design should look as good as it does in color • One slide per 1-2 minutes

  5. Use the same color scheme throughout your presentation.

  6. Transitions & Sound • Stick with 1 or 2 transitions • Use animation sparingly • Use sound judiciously

  7. Use Empty Space • Empty space adds impact • It makes message effective

  8. Yellow with black or blue background… is considered the most readable.

  9. Use your B key to black out Use your W key to white out Take Advantage of Black Outs This allows the audience to focus on what you are saying.

  10. Visuals • More compelling than text • Humans process visuals faster • 66,000 times faster than text

  11. Photos Particularly useful because your audience does not bring the same life experiences

  12. Rules for Text • Slide should simply outline speaking points • Create brief attention getters • One concept per slide • One slide for every 1-2 minutes • Obey the rule of six by six • No more than six words and six lines per slide

  13. Point Size • Stand back 10 feet from your computer • See if you can read it • If so audience can read it from a projected image

  14. Font Size • 1” letters readable from 10 feet • 2” letters readable from 20 feet • 3” letters readable from 30 feet

  15. CAPS • LIMIT THE NUMBER OF WORDS IN CAPS • THEY MAKE TEXT HARDER TO READ! • They make text harder to read!

  16. Repetition • Repetition equals retention • Repetition equals retention • Repetition equals retention • Repetition equals retention • Repetition equals retention • Repetition equals retention
