Title: Creating PowerPoint Presentations


1
Creating PowerPoint Presentations
  • Content and Visuals for Presentations

2
Content for Presentations
Whatever organization pattern you use,the speech
needs to be well-marked for the user and follow a
general format.
  • Introduction forecastwhat you are going to say
  • Main points
  • Wrap up summary

3
Introduction Forecast
  • Discuss the purpose / goal of talk
  • Provide an overview slide including all main
    points (organizational plan) that you plan to
    address and use these points as main headings )

4
Main points might include
  • Statement of clients problem/need (background)
  • Research methodology (process)
  • Findings (documenation)
  • Recommendations

Be certain to label the points for your specific
situation (talking heads)
5
For each main point
  • Say what the point is
  • Provide details about the point
  • Summarize the point (if point requires more than
    one slide)
  • Make a transition to the next point

6
Wrap up
  • Summarize all main points
  • Say what the talk has tried to do
  • Indicate what action you want the audience to
    take
  • Ask for questions

7
Visuals for Presentations
  • The following nine slides will discuss
  • Font size
  • Font type
  • Color
  • Visual sets
  • Readability
  • Special effects

8
Font Size
  • Use a much larger font size for headings to
    clearly differentiate the main point from the
    explanation (or use a different color for
    headings)
  • Use the largest font size that consistently
    allows all the text you wish to include on each
    slide

9
Font Type
  • Use a sans serif font such as Helvetica for
    headings and for sparse text
  • If you have wordy slides, use a serif font such
    as times new roman for the text part of the slide
  • In most cases, avoid using all capital letters
    for headings

10
Color
  • Make a strong contrast between background and
    text
  • Use a dark text with a light background and a
    light text with a dark background
  • Make the background match the room color (light
    in a bright room, dark in a dark room so that the
    words stand out)

11
Visual Sets
  • Visual sets are any repetitious aspect to your
    slides
  • Include as many visual sets as possible to help
    orient your listeners to your talk

12
Visual sets include
  • consistent placement of headings
  • consistent color scheme and font
  • using the same PowerPoint template for entire
    presentation
  • using same effects for all slides (e.g.., fade to
    black for transition, points fly in from left,
    etc.)

13
Readability
  • Include one main point per slide
  • Limit six words per line
  • Limit six lines per slide
  • Use as little text as possible on each slide
  • Use a conservative template appropriate for your
    audience

14
Using Special Effects
  • If you want to illustrate an overview, dont fade
    or dissolve points
  • Remember that the goal of your presentation is
    communicationdont let special effects obstruct
    the info
