3 Pro Presentation Tips
1. A Simple But Impressive Design
The PowerPoint design reflects your brand image. Although images come to mind when it comes to design, how you use your content is just as important in presentation designs.
We have listed rules you need to pay attention to for an impressive presentation design:
Use of Visuals: The use of relevant visuals increases memorability and brings liveliness to the presentation.
Correct Content Usage: It is not correct to write all subjects you intend to tell on the slide. Your summary sentence should be on slides, not every detail.
PowerPoint Fonts: Font image determines your image. Find the best font for titles and descriptions.
PowerPoint Backgrounds: Background eliminates the monotony of presentation, adds to the design.
CTA: Call-to-action sentences that you will use at the beginning and at the end that are compatible with your message provide more interaction.
10-20-30 Rule: You can make the presentation more understandable by setting the 10-slide number, 20-minute time, and 30-point font.
Animation: An animation determined according to the content of the subject makes the presentation dynamic.
2. A Good Story
Stories attract all of us. They help us pay attention to the subject and remember them. It also reveals our emotions. Using a story in a presentation allows the audience to establish a stronger connection with a subject.
There are two basic storytelling techniques for accurate storytelling:
Focus on Character: Tells people's stories. This provides a structure that provides a better understanding of the target audience. Imagine a person who needs your product, and put it in a story.
Changing Dynamic: There is something that needs to change throughout the story. It allows you to explain problems of the old version more clearly in case of a change or update. People who need the product are made to feel these problems.
3. Correct Expression
After preparing the design and content of the presentation, it remains to present it. A good narrator is required for a good presentation. This narrator can be you with a few simple techniques.
We have listed the points you need to pay attention to for a more impressive expression:
Don't Hide Your Passion: When you're excited, trying to hide it often doesn't work. Instead, use your excitement for a better expression. Connect with your target audience, be enthusiastic and honest. Tell them what is important about the presentation.
Consider Your Target Audience: Although this is related to the preparation part of the presentation, it directly affects the narration. You should think about what your target audience knows or not, and focus on the most fundamental issues throughout the presentation without distraction.
Make Eye Contact: Smiling and making eye contact with the audience relieves tension and helps everyone to focus attention. Set the lighting well to apply this rule, which is difficult to apply, however easy it is. If you are afraid to make eye contact, determine yourself 3 points on the wall behind the audience for looking there.
Pay Attention to the Beginning and the End: You should mention your purpose at the beginning and what you want from them at the end. For the initial first impression, the result is important for interaction. Do not leave these moments uncertain. It often works well to start with a joke.
Try to Speak Expressively: This is not about 100% tone of voice. Methods such as diction, emphasis, and changing the volume of the voice help to use the sound effects.
