How do you know if your PowerPoint will bore your audience?

Do any of these fit?

If the print out of your slides can double as your handout…
…your PowerPoint will bore your audience.

If you feel the need to annotate your slides…
…your PowerPoint will bore your audience.

If anyone could give your presentation by simply reading the slides…
…your PowerPoint will bore your audience.

If you keep making the font size smaller and smaller to fit everything on…
…your PowerPoint will bore your audience.

At most events my presentation is preceded by a presentation by a doctor or other health professional charged with giving the “facts” about women and heart disease.  More often than not, this presentation is accompanied by a PowerPoint which almost immediately causes the audience to tune out. It is information overload.

PowerPoint is a wonderful tool, but it shouldn’t be the documentation for your presentation.

My advice:

  • Prepare an information-rich handout as an article, information sheet, resource list or bullet points.
  • Use your slides to illustrate your point graphically with pictures, graphics, videos, charts, and tables.
  • Use as few words as possible.

Use PowerPoint wisely to help your audience stay engaged and be educated.
