Outline

Make your 1 st slide an outline of your presentation

Follow the order of your outline

Only place main points on the outline slide

Slide Structure

Plan for about 1.5-2 minutes per slide in your presentation

Write in point form, not complete sentences, i.e., use key words and phrases

Not everything needs to be presented

:

choose material to be put on slides

Slides should be un-cluttered and

use bullets

Fonts

Use 28-point (Caps) font-size for text and 32 point (Caps) for titles/headings

Use a standard font like Times New Roman or

Arial

Color

Use colors so that the text contrasts sharply with the background

Make a mock presentation and see your slides presented on a screen/wall (

and not on a computer screen only

)

Background

Use backgrounds such as this one that are attractive but simple

Use backgrounds which are light

Use the same background consistently throughout your presentation

Graphs

Use graphs rather than charts and words

Data in graphs is easier to comprehend and retain than is raw data

Trends are easier to visualize in graphical form

Always title your graphs

Spelling and Grammar

Proof your slides for:

– spelling mistakes

– the use of repeated words grammatical errors you might have made

If English is not your first language, please have someone else check your presentation
