PRESENTATION SOFTWARE Provide support for an oral presentation Helps viewer visualize concepts Focuses attention on key points
BE CAREFUL Poorly developed slides can ruin a presentation Common problems Too much text Poorly selected graphics
CREATING SLIDES Keep the design basic and simple Choose a font that is easy to read Carefully select font sizes for headers and text Decorate scarcely but well Do not let the slide design restrict your message
BE CONSISTENT Use the same font and sizes on all slides Match colors throughout presentation Use contrast White background with black text is best Make sure color choices are easy on the eyes
KISS Keep it straight and simple Keywords only No sentences Never read your slides…. Talk freely Use the 8 by 8 rule No more than 8 words per line No more than 8 lines per slide by
ADDING IMAGES Use more images than text Do not use images to decorate Use images to visualize or explain Images can reinforce or compliment your message A picture can say more than a thousand words.
PRACTICE A well prepared and enthusiastic talk will keep audience attention Know your slides inside and out Speak with confidence – loud and clear Slow down Maintain eye contact with your audience
