FAQ

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:

  • Begins with a “hook” or emotionally compelling story
  • Presents the problem you’re trying to solve
  • Explains the unique solution you’ve come up with
  • Is efficient, engaging and memorable
  • Uses visuals that support your message.

A well-designed presentation is key to engaging your audience. You’ll need to make it simple and easy to understand, visual and audience-ready, functional and user friendly and professional. Your presentation is a chance to make a positive first impression.
