A consultant’s presentation will more often than not comprise complex business concepts, loads of data and technical processes. These have to be communicated in a manner that grabs the audience’s attention and holds it for the duration of the presentation. This can be a tough task when the slides you’ve created have nothing but static numbers, text and uninspiring graphics. A successful PowerPoint presentation is one which the audience can quickly comprehend and recall long after it is over.
24point0’s tips for PowerPoint presentations helps consultants deliver the message effectively:
1. Establish Connect with Your Audience – Choose the Right Template
Experienced consultants know that while a presenter can make an impact through carefully chosen words, a presentation has to visually connect with your audience for them to respond to it. Slides should be neat and well formatted but the usage of appropriate templates will resonate with the viewer. For example, if your presentation concerns human resources, then ensure that the imagery in the template used reflects the content. Use pictures or illustrations of individuals or groups of people to underscore the theme of your presentation.
Sourcing the right imagery can be difficult – image databases can take a lot of time to trawl through and you’ll have to spend time creating the template from scratch. To save you the time and effort, 24point0 has created a range of editable PowerPoint templates for various industries and business needs. Buy and download the one that’s most appropriate for you and customize it to fit your requirements.
