Get the Cutting Edge from Power Point Presentation Tips

So what are those PowerPoint presentation tips that make your argument a cut above the rest? Here’s what:

1. Avoid long sentences per slide. Keep it to a minimum of 7-10 lines. Remember you are showing not only words, but other graphics. Just use keywords and phrases, instead of long sentences. Your boss does not want to be encumbered with both words and data or images vying for his attention.

2. Your text font should be big enough, but must not go beyond 20-32 font size. Use bullets to make your presentation crisp. Your titles should be within the 32 -50 font size.

3. Limit the number of slides. People cannot catch your drift if you’ve got so many slides clamoring for their short attention spans. Try to spend at least 45 seconds per slide and don’t rush. Let your ideas sink into the consciousness of your audience. And avoid speaking in a monotone. Put life into your words and pause when it’s necessary. These all add up to hi-powered PowerPoint presentation.

4. Avoid overly artsy slides. Opt for white backgrounds and dark text. It is much more effective and readable in lighted rooms. If you are going to use darkened conference areas, use two-tone color slides.

5. Make judicious use of animations or else risk confusion and distraction from the main piece.

6. Time your presentation. If you are given time limits per presentation, check out how long your PowerPoint presentation will take. Tighten the entire production to meet the requirement.

These PowerPoint presentation tips will help you make a better performance in the coming meeting and all future web conferences. So power up now and be the toast of the town.
