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.”

Alternative ways of getting your message across’

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-11396474

This clip taken from the BBC News website suggests that PowerPoint presentations are a thing of the past. However, if the right approach is used when designing and building a PowerPoint presentation, the result can be astonishing. Whilst the new story features presentations that are a little extreme, it does highlight the importance of engaging your audience and not overloading them with data.

At Article 10, we strive to meet the needs of our clients and we are inundated with requests to ‘jazz up’ what would otherwise be dreary and repetitive PowerPoint presentations. The use of visual and aural stimulation can really boost a presentation and Article 10’s expertise in animation as well as other forms of media enhancement always succeeds in bringing our clients presentations to life.
