Make the point that needs to be made clear to the audience.2Limit TextSource: slworking2 https://www.flickr.com/photos/slworking/306427904/ Limit the text. Do not have a lot of texts on the slides because your audience is going to read that on their own or not pay attention. Keep it simple and make the point clear. This also helps not read right off the slide and insult the intelligence of the audience.3Limit TransitionsSource: Michael Nienaltowski https://www.flickr.com/photos/nino63004/1740494720/

If the information is not clear and the audience can not read the information then the whole presentation is worthless. It is important that the information being conveyed is clear and can be read by the audience. 9Use Audio/Video Source: Sergiu Bacioiu https://www.flickr.com/photos/sergiu_bacioiu/4370021957/Using Audio or Videos makes presentations exciting and interesting. It gives the audience a break from the presenters voice and gives their mind a break. It also breaks up the presentation too. It can also help convey the message given.10Slide Order MattersSource: Svenwerk https://www.flickr.com/photos/svenwerk/3973734146/ Order matters because if the presentation does not make sense logically, the audience will be confused and the message will not be conveyed properly. The slides need to be in a logical order for the audience to understand and for a great presentation.11
