PowerPoint Presentations

Monday, March 25, 2013

Began researching some information regarding PowerPoint Presentations.  Listing a few important summary items that stood out for me to keep focused with future presentations.  Sometimes I get so caught up in the moment and briefly lose sight of the main objective.

  • Know your audience
  • Audience needs to know:
    • Where we are now
    • Where we want to end up
    • How we are going to get there
  • Slide content:
    • Problem
    • Solution or options including costs
    • Timeline
    • Summarize call to action

Always looking for ways to improve, especially with presentation material, found information helpful on microsoft at work.  One point that resonates with me:

“A well-chosen chart or diagram can often convey much more to your audience than can boring bulleted text.”
