Presentation Lab


Doing the presentation

Try out your presentation in advance

  • check to see if the timings of the transitions and animations will work for the audience
  • pay particular attention to how much time it takes for animations to occur
  • remember that most audiences do not have a lot of time to spend waiting for things to happen

The eye can see and understand concepts very quickly.
The quicker your presentation can get in,
make a positive impression,
and get out,
the better off you will be.

Key principles to consider

  • focus on the audience's needs and build your visuals to conform to their expectations and your message
  • simple and effective is preferable to complex and confusing

Rules to live by

Hammer it home
