These guidelines have been compiled by New Media and Public Relations and Marketing to help you improve your use of PowerPoint to communicate your ideas.
These are only guidelines, but we hope you will follow them whenever you create a PowerPoint presentation.
PowerPoint is widely used by speakers for occasions as varied as sales pitches, research summaries, reunions and wedding anniversaries. Where speakers once relied on note cards to remind themselves of their next line, they now use PowerPoint. Unfortunately many speakers simply present the equivalent of their note cards on screen.
Illustrate your ideas with examples, especially images, and don’t read from your slides.
Because authors so often read from their slides, they usually put too much text on each slide.
