What rules should be followed when creating a presentation in PowerPoint? First, don't overload the slides. The presentation template should be minimalist and light. In accordance with the theme of the presentation use appropriate colors. In any case, never use too bright background red, blue, bright green.
Secondly, the font should be large and readable. Use color font, sharply distinguishable from the background – black or white. Use as little text on slides, only keywords and highlights. The rest of the information you can read from the app or from memory. Do not place all text on slides and read it as a lecture is boring. But the charts and tables, well as simplified, as well as numbers and facts are welcome.
Third, use the original high quality photos, preferably in public not that no one has previously seen. The photographs must be in focus, which will stop the viewer. Images should be vivid and memorable.
Fourth, use a minimum of effects. The animation has to be simple, fast. No need to use long passages, vintage loss of letters, etc. it All distracts the viewer and makes viewing of the presentation of uncomfortable and nervous.
Fifth, limit the number of slides and the presentation. A huge number of slides will lead to the fact that the audience will forget a large block of information. The most important and spectacular slides should be placed at the beginning and the end of the presentation.
Sixth, keep your presentation in their hands. Look at the projected slides as little as possible so the listeners do not have the feeling of being ill prepared. Manage voice, highlighting important passages and intonation. It is desirable to keep control of the presentation of the at – drop assistant, which can confuse the start time of the next slide or "push the wrong button," straighten up and generally stay on the stage confidently. Nearly half the time of the presentation the audience will not look at the slides, and on your person.
