Successful Presentation with PowerPoint
  

PowerPoint is useful. Speakers love it. But audiences are easily bored by embarrassing decorations and a vague argument. This can be prevented. PowerPoint is a powerful and useful for many purposes purpose software product. Pictures can be projected on the wall, movies and integrate gradually build up complex offenses. With this product, but is a very special "culture" along that prevents clear thinking.

Images, Bullet Points, etc

This culture is characterized by a more or less synchronously with the presentation running use of text graphs, meaningless lists (bullets) and more of the "beautiful" design as influenced by the content creator diagrams. "Corporate Design" and "Master Slides" are the focus, logos and empty frames and unnecessary background dominate the visual impression. The message to be conveyed is not stated clearly and listeners do not understand the intellectual context.

First error with PowerPoint: No message

Error number one : source are missing or unclear messages. A message might also explain - at best, but a recommendation that calls the speaker at the beginning of the presentation clearly. It is advisable to fix before writing the message to yourself clarity about the then the following reasoning. Embed audience. "Now I want you even imagine our product" in this sense is a rather interesting message, and the audience will end up not knowing whether they have seen everything. It is better if you address audience with the message "Our product will reduce your printing costs by at least 1000 € per month". This is a statement relevant to the audience that they can check their veracity.

Second mistake with PowerPoint Wrong Charts

Each figure should have only one purpose: to deliver content, the words do not or can not be communicated clearly enough. For this reason, you should text diagrams avoided in principle, and the popular "bullet" lists as well. Although one can remember what they saw and heard the better - but not the READ and the heard! Exceptions: The speaker talks about a text such as a new law or presenters and listeners do not speak, or not good enough, the same language. Good graphs are characterized in that a message is conveyed without being banal. The statement "Our project has four phases" is banal. Other hand, could the following statement of interest to the audience: "could happen if we do not do this in Phase 2, then the following ..." Good charts also lift the message out in an appropriate manner, either by circling, underlining, arrows or other means.

Third mistake with PowerPoint: Too much decoration

Boxes, frames, shadows, backgrounds and colors without meaning, large corporate logos and the unavoidable corporate design guidelines: In general PowerPoint slides a little too colorful, loud and elaborate decoration. You should basically give up everything that has no meaning and only the idea of a "pleasing appearance" is used. It is not helpful when the color red on the one hand for corporate design and meaningless design is used, on the other hand, for emphasis, such as traffic lights and special discrepancies. In particular, colors and shapes are good for teaching and emphasis of very complex facts - it's awkward when colors and forms of decoration only to be sacrificed.

Re: Successful Presentation with PowerPoint

When you try to open a presentation that was saved in a Microsoft PowerPoint format, the presentation does not open. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
You are attempting to open a file type that is blocked by your registry policy setting.
This issue may occur if an administrator has restricted the types of presentations that you can open in Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007. An administrator can set a registry key to restrict this functionality.
For PowerPoint 2007, the registry key can be set in the 2007 Office System Administrative Templates.
