Title: Effective PowerPoint Presentations


1
Effective PowerPoint Presentations
  • It is easy to make a PowerPoint slide show
    however, harder to make an effective presentation

2
Why Use PowerPoint
  • Overhead Transparencies will not work anymore in
    large auditoriums.
  • Imagine if your church or other organization used
    an overhead to make their points instead of
    PowerPoint.
  • PowerPoint allows you to interact with your
    audience, the Rocky Mountain Travel Association.

3
Effective PowerPoint Presentations
  • If your presentation is meaningful it will
    determine if your subjects will go to sleep or be
    involved in what you are saying.
  • I will look around the room to see how involved
    your travel agents are in this presentation

4
Color Scheme
  • Light text on a dark background is most
    effective.
  • As long as you stick to this just make sure that
    your colors are pleasing.
  • Only change the scheme on certain slides that you
    want to emphasize. Such as a green background
    when you are referencing money.
  • In a business setting you would probably want to
    use the colors that the business has adopted,
    such as Coca-Cola Red.

5
Too Much Information!
  • Your PowerPoint presentation is an aid not the
    presentation in itself.
  • If you have a slide with more than five bullets
    include them in a new slide.
  • Make just major points with bullets your audience
    cannot read too much information from a slide,
    consider using handouts!
  • Never read from your presentation.

6
Clip Art
  • Use clip art to help make your points without
    having to explain them!
  • Be careful with animated gifs that might take
    away from what you are saying!
  • Try not to use the same clips several times in
    your presentation.
  • This does not apply to your logos--put these on
    the master slides to help reinforce your
    companys image.

7
Backgrounds
  • Try to customize your presentations by changing
    the color schemes, and making custom backgrounds.
  • If your audience sees a generic brand
    presentation they are less likely to pay
    attention to what you are saying.
  • You can purchase from an Office Supply store both
    new backgrounds and clip art.

8
Technology
  • When you use transitions, sounds, and custom
    animation use it sparingly.
  • Remember sound from your laptop may not have
    enough volume for everyone to hear it.
  • Remember some animation makes text harder to
    read.
  • There is nothing better than a presentation that
    is done professionally with only limited effects

9
  • Empty Space
  • Use it!
  • Empty Space adds impact!

10
Why are you doing this presentation?
  • Start with the end in mind.
  • Why are you speaking to this group of travel
    agents, what are you trying to accomplish!
  • Your reward in this class is a good grade, your
    reward in the world of work is to keep your job.

11
Hints For A Successful Presentation
  • Plan carefully
  • Do your research
  • Know your audience
  • Time your presentation
  • Practice your presentation
  • Speak comfortably and clearly

12
Effective PowerPoint Slides
  • Standardize position, colors and styles
  • Include only necessary information.
  • Use colors that contrast
  • Too many slides can lose your audience

13
Text Guidelines
  • Generally no more than 6 words a line
  • Avoid long sentences
  • Larger fonts indicate more important information
  • Be sure text contrast with background
  • Fancy fonts can be hard to read
  • WORDS IN ALL CAPITAL LETTER ARE HARD TO READ

14
Clip Art and Graphics
  • Should balance the slide
  • Should enhance and complement the text not
    overwhelm or take away from it.
  • No more than two graphics per slide.
