22
Well done!
  • Hopefully you were able to spot all the mistakes
    made over the last six slides.
  • Now for some basic rules

23
The Basic Rules
  • Get comfortable with the technology (so you know
    how to set up and which buttons to press!)
  • Know what you are talking about (so you dont
    have to read from your notes).
  • Use the Notes view instead of trying to cram
    your whole speech into bullet points.
  • Be careful with creative graphics and
    animations, seeking professional help in design
    if necessary - If youre an effective speaker, a
    plain white background wont hurt how you make
    your case.

24
Basic Rules continued
  • Know what information works on a slide and what
    would work better presented in a different medium
    - i.e. distributing detailed handouts.
  • The B key blacks out the screen during a
    PowerPoint presentation - Dont be afraid to use
    it so the slides wont compete with what are
    ultimately your most effective communication
    tools your voice, mannerisms and facial
    expressions.

25
The PowerPoint Pledge
  • Remember, PowerPoint doesnt kill presentations
    people kill presentations. Do yourself a favour.
    From this day forward, vow that you wont make
    the mistake of subjecting your audiences to any
    more death by PowerPoint than theyve already had
    to endure.
