Another PowerPoint tip from Article 10…

October 4, 2010

Another hint from the PowerPoint experts at Article 10

“Set your stall out early. Your audience will appreciate knowing at the beginning what you are going to cover.
As your presentation progresses, keep referring back to your initial agenda using highlights to show where you are up to.
Then at the end, summarise what you’ve talked about. The evening news on TV is great at this. Their format is:
– Tell them what you’re going to tell them
– Tell them
– Tell them again what you told them
Audiences remember content structured in this way.”
