To create great presentation slides, aim for clarity, concision and visual appeal. Make an outline before you create each slide so that you know what should go on it. Don’t overcrowd the slides with text or data. Keep bullet point lists to three points.
A good presentation should include:
A good presentation should be efficient, engaging, and memorable.
A well-designed presentation reflects your mastery of the topic and commitment to getting your message across in a simple and readable manner. Great presentation design showcases a positive first impression which increases your presentation’s success in engaging an audience.
To create a five-minute presentation, you must plan to have about five to six slides and spend roughly one minute on each slide. There should be a Title, Author, or Introduction slide, a Problem Description or an Outline slide, an Analysis or Proposed Solutions slide, and a Summary or Conclusion slide.
You may follow this slide order or you can add more slides as you decrease the time spent on each slide. Focus on the main idea you wish to communicate and plan out what you wish to say during the presentation.
