We asked our team of presentation designers what they thought were the top tips for making a great presentation. Here’s what they came up with.
1. Keep it simple:
Avoid cluttered slides with too much text, graphics, or animations. Stick to a clear and concise message, and use visual aids to illustrate your points.
2. Use high-quality images:
Choose images that are clear, relevant, and eye-catching. Avoid using clip art or low-resolution images.
3. Use legible fonts:
Choose fonts that are easy to read and avoid using too many different fonts in the same presentation. Keep in mind that some fonts may not be available on all computers.
4. Stick to a consistent color scheme:
Choose a color scheme that is professional and consistent throughout the presentation. Use contrasting colors for text and background to make it easy to read.
5. Practice your delivery:
Be confident and engaging when delivering your presentation. Practice your timing and tone of voice, and be prepared to answer questions.
6. Keep it short:
People have short attention spans, so aim to keep your presentation to no more than 20 minutes.
7. Provide a clear call to action:
End your presentation with a clear call to action that motivates your audience to take action.
Remember, a great PowerPoint presentation should enhance your message and help you communicate more effectively.
