CUT THE CRAP OUT:
If you indeed wish to make an effective powerpoint presentation then you must learn how get rid of all the extraneous text. Don’t make your graphs too complex by adding in a few more lines just because you think your powerpoint presentation would look more beautiful with a few added colors. No sir..this ain’t gonna work!!
Remember, you are not there on the podium with a stick to torture the audience with powerpoint presentation slides. Whether you have been given the opportunity to make a business powerpoint presentation or are simply teaching a bunch of students through a ppt presentation you must never allow yourself to ramble on and on…. Cut your speech short and make it to the point. If you forget something just cut it out.
LESS IS MORE:
This is the guru mantra to make powerpoint presentation more effectual. Minimalism must be the essence of your powerpoint presentation ppt. Don’t torment your listeners with long, not required detailed information. Please please please give out separate hand outs if your reeeeaally feel that there is a need of detailing over the subject. Give your powerpoint presentation audience a break and spare them the crucification.
Follow these first few powerpoint presentation guidelines and see the difference. Trust me, the next time you make a powerpoint presentation your audience will be thankful to you for not torturing them.
