Making presentations is a “necessary evil” for many professionals. Too often, lack of confidence or uncertainty about what is expected causes presenters to create slides that are confusing, overloaded with detail, and hard for the audience to follow. Slides that are stuffed with information or heavy with graphics are distracting. You can quickly lose your audience’s interest and attention. How can you avoid these two pitfalls? First, you need to recognize that “less really is more” and keeping your options open is essential. Then you want to develop a sense of what makes a “good” slide and what makes for a “not-so-good” slide, and how to tell the difference. Another step is planning your presentation while keeping the “bottom line up front (BLUF).” Finally, it is worth spending time analyzing slides, while keeping the likely audience in mind, to determine what would turn questionable material into audience-friendly presentations.
1. A clear understanding of the types and content of presentation materials that resonate with audiences 2. Techniques to employ “less is more” and BLUF when developing presentation materials 3. Examples of best practices and effective presentation approaches
