Here are some good tips to follow and some things to avoid when putting together MS Power Point presentations:
The presentation should:
- Include AT LEAST 12 slides; a cover slide, an agenda slide, a closing slide, and a references slide as the slide slide in the deck are included in this number.
- Include speaker’s notes below each slide (think of these as notecards you would look at when presenting your slides – discussing in more detail each of the points you’ve made on the slides
- Follow the power point rule of 5 to 7 (no more than 5-7 bullet points per slide and no more than 5-7 words per bullet point). This is a guideline but gets to the point that slides should NOT have every word that you’re going to say on them. They should be concise and high level – you will talk about each point in more detail when you present your slide deck.
