It cannot be denied that the presentation that uses PowerPoint has become standard and has been used everywhere, whether it is in government agencies, universities or in schools.
The followings are some tips for making a good PowerPoint presentation, so that your presentation will be preferred and given applause by the audience. It is known that with a good presentation, your project proposals, suggestions or your opinions have a great chance for approval.
1. Easy to read
A good presentation is easy to read, so you should use standard letters, like Arial or Times New Roman. Besides, use letters that are quite big, so your audience does not get difficulty to read the letters.
2. A clear title on each slide
You should use bold, clear and easy to read letters on your each slide title.
3. Simple background
Notice the background that you use on each slide that you create. Do not let the sentences you have written unclear to read because you wear too contrasting background.
4. Graphics and Charts
Using images such as charts and diagrams will help you to explain about the topic you are presenting better. In addition, by using graphics or charts, you will refresh the atmosphere and invite the attention of the audience.
5. Stay focus
Just write down the principal matters in connection with the topic you are presenting. Do not use too many words or sentences in a presentation slide, but simply write your title or course outline. You should also make sure that every slide you create is related to one another.
6. Do not have too many slides
Do not make too many presentation slides for one topic you discuss. Make slides as efficiently as possible. If the topic you discuss is long indeed, a verbal explanation would be better.
7. Speak clearly
When giving the presentation, try to speak clearly, so that the audience could understand the presentation you deliver. Most audiences think that PowerPoint presentation is not quite interesting and with your creativity and good conversation, you could change this view.
8. Give opportunity to ask
If possible, take the time to provide the opportunity for the audience to ask questions about things that are not understood from the presentation that you convey.
9. Future Follow Up
Another important thing is to give audiences the opportunity to ask questions at another time on the topic of your presentation. So, do not hesitate to put down your e-mail list, no. phone or website at the end of your presentation. This could be a plus for you.
