POWERPOINT PRESENTATIONS What Not to Do
You should not fill the entire slide with typing because your audience will become very bored or disinterested. They may have trouble reading so much information or may not be able to focus on the topic that you are speaking about.
Don’t Be Too Busy If you have pictures all over the slide, your words may get lost in the presentation.
Don’t Be Too Boring No one wants to sit through a presentation that isn’t interesting.
TRY NOT TO MAKE THE PRESENTATION TOO DARK.
Don’t Make the Slide Show Too Confusing If you have too many different transitions, it can make your slide show look sloppy. Pick 1 or 2 different transitions so that your presentation flows.
Do NOT copy & paste entire paragraphs – Too much info & no one can read this Example: In order to better serve our customers, the Ohio Historical Society will begin collecting the ZIP code of each group or individual visiting one of our locations. The ZIP code data will allow us to learn more about our visitors. This information will help shape our programming and marketing decisions and will help to demonstrate the impact of the Ohio Historical Society. Thank you for providing your ZIP code when you visit. The Ohio Historical Society operates a statewide network of historical, archaeological and natural history sites. For general information on any specific historical site, including location, hours/days of operation, and admission fees* (if any), click on the regional map or follow the links provided immediately below the map. For information beyond what is offered on the site pages, or to obtain individual site brochures, call (toll- free) OHIO, or contact the individual site directly. Logan Elm State Memorial is said to be the site where, in 1774, Chief Logan of the Mingo tribe delivered his eloquent speech on Indian-white relations. The speech was supposedly delivered under a large elm tree. Considered to be one of the largest elms in the U. S., the tree stood 65 feet tall, with a trunk circumference of 24 feet and foliage spread of 180 feet. It died in 1964 from damage by blight and storms. The tree's former location is marked by a plaque. Other plaques and monuments in the park honor Native Americans and early Ohio settlers.
Don’t Use Multiple Backgrounds Stick with one background color or design unless you are using an image to help get your point across. Also, when presenting a final report, try to stay away from these types of “”Busy” backgrounds. They distract from your presentation.
Proofread your presentation Use Spellcheck Verify your grammar Check for punctuation
