Summary
Make it personal
Take into account
your target
audience
Size of your audience
determines whether to use slides or not
Start with an executive
Do you want to inform or
evoke a discussion?
do you want to elaborate on
micro details or
concepts / macro details
The basics of PPT are too easy

Most people don't even know their
Powerpoint sucks since they
think
it is easy to master!
Digital presentations
Upcoming trend!
But how do you incorporate our advice?
Right tool

PDF + SKYPE


Collaborative software
such as Go-To-Meeting or join.me
Use
visuals

The biggest
errors
Take the
computer requirements
into account and be aware of
computer malfunctions
.
Maintain
eye contact
with the listeners through the camera
Where
do you give your presentation?

Choose a simple background (e.g. plain color wall)

Make sure there is no background noise

IMPORTANT: Do a test run!
Avoid being a
talking head

Use graphs, photos, ... => Visuals

It is even more imporant in the online presentation to
capture
the
interest of the audience
Build your presentation in a dramatic, interesting-to-follow manner

Falling into a simple reading-the-text presentation is dangerous
The
introduction
: Attract the attention by starting with an executive summary

The
body
: Give examples of the benefit by showing a lot of visuals

The
conclusion
: Contact info and highlight the value

The
Q and A
: Anticipate the questions by including some slides
How will you structure your presentation ?
Remember: is key in the presentation
Thank you for your attention!

QUICK TIP
TOOLBOX

Summary
Now we want to know from you ...
... why did we include the toolbox
with the quick tips?
Start with
Exec Sum
and end with a
Summary
: the attention is the highest



Use small
intermezzo
’s to re-increase attention level
Use the Toolbox
the standard Concentration of the audience ...
1. The framework
2. An example
This is why we want to give you some advice on how to
support
your oral presentation.
But first of all, let's take a look at the
QUICK TIP TOOLBOX
Tip 1
for a first tip!
Use the right
Visual Aid
for the right purpose
Track small changes over time
line chart
Compare parts of a whole
pie chart
Compare between different groups
or large changes over time
bar chart
Determine relationships
X-Y plot
Use long titles
According to the default setting of Powerpoint,
you should use
short titles
.
Don't do this!
Researchers showed this slide to students.
They were asked to
recall
the information in the first
bullet point.
46%
was able to recall
They showed this slide with a
longer headline
to another group of students
They were asked to recall what was in the headline
63%
was able to recall
Reason for better recall?
Greater
typographical emphasis
on the headline
Putting information in a
bullet list
reduces
emphasis, even if it is the first item
Less detail
on the second slide +
more visualization
Tip 2
Tip 3
Tip 4
Tip 5
Note:
the tips we give in the Quick Tip Toolbox have nothing to do with
the framework we use. They are just little tricks that can come in very handy in practice.
Why exactly do we use this toolbox?
We will come back on that later!
Why not? Let's take a look at the experiment below.
Tip:
your PowerPoint screen should not be
in the middle of the room, you should!
