PowerPoint Presentations: 6 Tips for Clarity, Effectiveness, and Productivity

PowerPoint Presentations: 6 Tips for Clarity, Effectiveness, and Productivity

While staying relevant to your audience is important, it’s not the only thing you should focus on when preparing for a presentation. While there are plenty of tips out there, these six are some that I’ve found to be helpful in making my presentations as clear as possible.

These six tips are a helpful starting point for making your presentations clear, effective, and productive. They may be basic, but they’re also important to keep in mind when preparing for a presentation.

1. Use transitions between slides.

2. Keep your slides brief and use bullet points over full sentences.

3. Include an introduction slide that helps contextualize the information you’ll be presenting with the most important points showcased first.

4. Provide a summary slide at the start of your presentation to set the stage and point out what the speaker will cover in their talk.

5. Use web animations like transitions or hotspots to engage your audience throughout your talk

6. Be prepared for any question or comment from your listeners and have a back-up plan for how to handle it

 

Transitions Between Slides

Transitions between slides can help keep your audience engaged and help them understand what you’re going to be talking about in the next slide. In addition, slides that have a transition to the next slide often have a greater chance of being seen and remembered by your audience than one without.

The most important part of every presentation is its content, but it can be easy to forget about the slides themselves. Transitions are a great way to keep your audience engaged and focused on what you’re saying. You can make them visually interesting with custom animations or simple jingles that match your brand’s voice and tone.

If your presentation has a lot of information, consider adding some transition slides to help break up the monotony and keep your audience engaged. Transition slides are a great way to make your talk seem more exciting and interactive.

 

Bullet points over sentences

Bullet points are a great way to quickly let your audience know what’s important in your talk. They’re easy to read, and they’re usually much shorter than sentences. Bullet points also give your audience a quick overview of the talk you’ll be giving.

One of the easiest ways to keep things clear and concise is to limit yourself to one or two lines per slide in general, unless they’re needed for additional context or explanation. Bullet points allow your audience to quickly scan through each slide while at the same time retaining a deeper understanding of what you’ll be presenting on that specific topic.

 

Introductions and Summaries

Every presentation should have an introduction and summary to help the audience understand what the speaker will be talking about. This is not only helpful for your audience, but it can also help you organize your thoughts in preparation.

This tip may seem like common sense, but it’s often overlooked for more exciting slides or colorful elements that don’t really communicate anything important about what you’re going to talk about (see example below). When you think about it, introductions are actually where a lot of people lose their attention before they’ve even started listening to you; so

 

Web Animations

Enjoying presentations is one of the best ways to stay engaged during a lecture. Web animations are an excellent way to ensure that your audience will be entertained as you speak.

When you’re presenting with your slides, you can make your presentation more engaging by using web animations like transitions or hotspots. Web animations help keep your audience engaged and interested in the information on each slide. This tip is a great way to engage your audience and keep them from getting bored.

 

Use animated transitions to engage your audience

Electronic slides are often a good way to engage your audience. This includes transitions between slides and hotspots that coincide with text or graphics on the slide. These slides can be used to highlight important points or show how your presentation ties in with the rest of the talk. Animated transitions like hotspots or data connectors allow you to move through information quickly while maintaining engagement with your audience

 

Use hotspots in your presentations to engage your audience

Hotspots are animated or interactive elements in PowerPoint presentations with a click, which will allow your audience to experience the presentation differently.

Use hotspots to bring your audience into the story you’re telling instead of passively watching it unfold. For example, one way to use hotspots is have an immersive slideshow that includes interactive data tables. As your audience clicks through the slides they will be able to scroll through and explore the data in the table and find new information as they go.

Another example is using hotspots that change throughout your talk. A good place for this would be after you’ve talked about a particular point during your presentation. You could also include hotspots for questions or comments from your listeners and make it easy for them to submit their questions or comment online with a simple click of their mouse.

 

Be prepared for any question or comment from your listeners and have a back-up plan for how to handle it

It’s important to be prepared for any question that may come up during your presentation! This makes it easier for you to stay on track, as well as save time by not having to address the same question multiple times during the talk.

Let’s say you’re presenting and a member of the audience asks a question about how your company is going to deal with competition. If you have a specific plan in mind then you’ll be able to answer their question succinctly and move on without getting off-track. If your back-up plan doesn’t work or isn’t relevant, then you know that’s why and can quickly transition into talking about what they asked instead.

 

Conclusion

Sometimes our presentations can be hard to follow, but these tips will help you make your presentations clear, effective, and productive.

Presentations are all about showing your audience what you have to say, but with a PowerPoint it can be hard to show all the information that you have in one simple slide. With these tips, you can make your presentation clear and engaging for your audience.
