21 Guidelines for Preparing Slide Presentations


23 No more than One Topic Per Slide Maintain Consistency
Template Colors Font Transitions Use Bullets rather than numbers unless the list is in sequence or in rank order Make Slides Easy To Read

24 Choose Color Carefully
Use the same color consistently throughout the presentation. Use light letters on a dark background and dark letters on a light background. Do not let color overpower the words. Use color to communicate, not decorate.

25 Use The 7 x 7 Rule Never use more than 7 lines of text per slide OR 7 words per line

26 Your Slides Are Not Your Presentation
Slide Presentation is your Visual Aid Slides draw attention to presentation. Use only Key Words---Not sentences or paragraphs Focus interest on what is important. Audience must finish reading before you start talking. Do not read slides to your audience.

27 Always use at least one but no more than two summary/conclusion slides.
Summary Slides Wrap It All Up: reviews what your presentation was about; It highlights the main points Summary Slide

28 Finish Slide “Thank You For Your Attention” or other appropriate finish slide. Include 2 or 3 copies of finish slide to avoid inadvertent mouse “clicks”.
