Top tips for top-notch presentations GETTING YOUR MESSAGE RIGHT If you audience only remember 3 things (and they will) what do you want them to be? YOU are as important as your slides (if not more!) –try to spend more time rehearsing than you spend creating your slides. Your presentation is a story: make sure it has a beginning, middle and end and introduce ideas one at a time. PERFECTING YOUR DELIVERY Just because it’s a story doesn’t mean you should read it. Instead tell it to your audience and aim to entertain! You’ll present better if you know what’s coming next without needing to see the next slide. Keep your language positive, friendly, conversational and inclusive. USING YOUR TOOLS WISELY Your slides aren’t your message: YOU ARE. Fewer words on your slides = more attention on what you’re saying. Use meaningful images, icons and infographics instead of lots of text (but never clip-art: it always looks amateur). Use your notes page to capture all the detail you talk through -not the slide! If your audience needs every detail, consider giving hand-outs afterwards.
Keeping your presentation “on-brand” Text MS Society presentation font is ARIAL. Please don’t change. Don’t alter the size, ratio or position of the logo Highlight headlines in orange Select the trapezium for bullets Keep language positive, friendly, conversational and inclusive Colours & Images Core colours are orange and white Use black for text Use pink and blue sparingly as accents Use images and icons where you can (Brand can help provide high- quality, approved images)
