    1 min INTRODUCTION
    4 min NECESSARY STUFF
    any info needed to make the interesting stuff make sense
    4 min INTERESTING STUFF
    1 min CONCLUSION

    TIP: helps to separate the presentation into recognizable sections. e.g. 1. title 2. title…

    RULE OF THUMB
    1 slide per minute
    TIP: keep one main point per slide

    www.online-stopwatch.com

    Speak slowly and enunciate clearly.

  • Develop an outline

    Then, plan the appearance.

  • Appearance of the slide show

  • Tables are a useful way to organize and present large amounts of information, for example:

    • technical, financial, statistical reports
    • Product catalogs showing descriptions, prices, characteristics, and photographs of products
    • bills or invoices
    • Lists of names with address, age, profession…

    Tables:

    • alternative to spreadsheets
    • helps reader comprehension
    • different objects may be used,
      pictures text
      *numbers
  • AVOID DESIGN MISTAKES

    1) TOO MUCH INFO

    • don’t read the text on the slides as if a doc.
    • don’t use senseless data.

    2) NOT ENOUGH VISUALS

    3) LOW QUALITY

    • don’t bore with childish visuals.
    • FONTS NOT TO USE:
      tahoma, MS sans serif, arial, verdana, courier new, times new roman, trebuchet MS, lucida console, comic sans ms

    4) VISUAL NOISE

    5) LACK OF PREPARATION (a 1 hour outstanding presentation can take 30 hours of prep)

  • DO INCLUDE

    1) KEEP IT RELEVANT.
    Less slides, more interaction. Turn data in something meaningful to the audience.

    2) USE STRONG VISUALS. www.istockphoto.com
    Design and use photos for the average joe.

    3) USE GREAT DESIGN. Buy it or study a great design.

    4) USE WHITESPACE
    Be mindful, use spacing and alignment tidy.
    Use colors, images and alignment consistently to give a cohesive look.
    USE a collection of photos that belong together in one slide.

    5) CRAFT THE PERFECT STORY. Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse.
    HAVE A SYSTEM for collecting ideas. Rework them into a masterpiece.

    Communicating with clarity directly impacts engagement and career.
