Good PowerPoint Design

I came across this great presentation while gathering resources for a workshop on improving your presentations (getting beyond the dreaded slides full of bullet points, better use of graphics, data visualizations and so on.)

The core points (ironically bullet-pointed!) are:

  • Design from audience perspective! What do they want/need to know.
  • Don’t overwhelm. Stick to a core message, use stories
  • Simple visuals, effective graphics.
  • YOU have to deliver – engage, inform, entertain  & involve the audience.
