Title: Making Your Points With Power


1
Making Your Points With Power
  • Developed by Steve Snow

2
Introduction
  • Objectives
  • Demo PowerPoint design tips
  • Emphasize how not to PowerPoint
  • Offer general presentation tips

3
Know Your Audience
  • Present information relevant to this audience
  • Stay focused on the main topic
  • Be brief
  • Avoid Bird Walks

4
Choosing Colors Part 1
  • Use colors with pop, meaning the words stand
    out against your background color
  • Dark backgrounds require light colors like white
    or gold

5
Choosing Colors Part 2
  • Red text on a blue background produces a purple
    haze

6
Choosing Colors Part 3
  • Green text on a red background looks fuzzy

7
Choosing Colors Part 4
  • Light backgrounds need dark colors like red or
    blue
  • This color changing is so much fun!
  • Dark backgrounds need light colorslike white or
    gold

8
Choosing Font Style Part 1
  • Arial, Verdana, or Tahoma
  • This is Arial 28 pt and you can easily read it.
  • This is Tahoma 28 pt.
  • This is Verdana 28 pt and it is very easy to read
    when projected.

9
Choosing Font Style Part 2
  • Times New Roman or Courier
  • Times New Roman 28 pt is difficult to read.
  • Courier 28 pt is very thin, even disconnected,
    when presented with a low quality projector.

10
Choosing Font Style Part 3
  • Welcome to Janes World is in Comic Sans 32 pt
    is a good font for a PLAYFUL presentation
  • HAPPY HALLOWEEN! is in Chiller 32 pt and is
    difficult to read. It is a FUN font but use it
    sparingly and for emphasis.
  • Word Art is good
  • Word Art

11
Choosing Font Size
  • Make sure lettering is big enough that people in
    the back of a room can read it.

12
Chunking Text
  • Reading many lines of text tires the audience out
    and distracts their attention from you and the
    excellent points you are making. Chunk
    information. I think four lines of text is
    enough in a chunk. If you are listing bullets of
    information as you are suppose to be doing in a
    PowerPoint presentation you shouldnt have this
    problem.

13
Using Bullets Part 1
  • Type phrases not sentences
  • Maintain parallel structure
  • Use the 666 Rule
  • 6 words per bullet
  • 6 bullets per slide
  • 6 word slides in a row

14
Using Bullets Part 2
  • PowerPoint provides a variety of bullets
  • Some are basic
  • Others may surprise you
  • Select bullets that enhance your presentation

15
Use Spell Check Part 1
  • Mayk use of spell checkker!

16
Use Spell Check Part 2
  • Ode To My Spell CheckerI have a spelling
    checkerit came with my PCIt plainly marks for
    my revue,Mistake I cannot sea.I've run this
    poem threw it,I'm sure your please too no.It's
