Creating impactful presentations does not have to be difficult. In fact, with a little thought and effort, it is easier than you might think.
My friend and presentation design expert, Timo Sorri, has created a slide deck that is featured on SlideShare. Timo asked me and seven other speaking professionals from around the world for one tip to help people make a bigger impact with their presentations. You can see the deck at the bottom of this post.
Of course, there is no “magic bullet” that will solve all your presentation issues. However, taken together, these eight tips will steer you in the right direction and get you that much closer to making an impact with your next slide presentation.
Audiences are tired of boring slide presentations filled with jargon and too much text, and not enough information that is relevant for them. They are hungry for meaningful presentations that are easy to follow and that make an impact. You can give them what they are looking for.
Designing impactful presentations need not be difficult. And you do not have to be a design expert. Instead, if you apply some basic principles, you can create slides that make an impact with your audience.
