Presentation Design Tips
Being able to effectively address any audience is a necessary leadership skill. Remember that you are the speaker, not a projectionist. Your purpose is not to present a slide show. Your audience is there to listen to what you have to say, not read your slides—or worse, listen to you read them. Design your presentation slides to compliment and reinforce your message and engage your listeners.
The following tips will help you create presentation slides that work to your advantage:
· Use a professional presentation template, or one used in your organization.
· Ensure that your slide background provides sufficient visual contrast for your text and graphics.
· Consider your intended audience and how best to communicate effectively with them.
· Focus on the content of your presentation and the development of your key points. Remember that your purpose is to introduce the new or upgraded technology to staff with positive results.
· Create slides that augment your presentation. They should not be your presentation.
· Remember that presentation slides are a visual medium. Images are more effective than text at engaging your audience.
· Be judicious in your use of bulleted lists. You might even consider a separate slide for some of your key points.
· Use speaker notes to record the details you want to communicate to your audience.
· Speaker notes can also serve as an audio recording script.
· Use images and graphics, when the visual representation of information facilitates understanding or effectively reinforces key points.
· Avoid using images that are simply decorative. They can be a visual distraction and do not contribute to your message.
· Avoid using flashy slide transitions and animations. They can be both distracting and annoying. Keep your slide transitions consistent throughout the presentation.
· Add a slide to the end of your presentation to prompt questions from the audience.
· Proofread your slides to minimize errors that could distract the audience and make it more difficult to focus on the substance of your presentation.
