Once consultants have a clear idea of what the theme or topic of the PPT, they should jot down the rough outline of the content that needs to be presented. This should then be broken up into three approximate chunks representing the beginning, middle and end of the PowerPoint presentation.
Introductory elements that explain what the PPT is about should come in the beginning along with a summary of what the audience can expect in the rest of the PPT.
The middle of the PPT should explain concepts in detail as well as their execution in various scenarios. The meat of the PPT, i.e. its richest and most meaningful text and images should occupy this part of the presentation.
The final part of the PPT should ideally be a summation of all that has gone before as well as a final, powerful forward looking statement. If the PPT discusses the implementation of new operational methods in a company, then the presenter can show a scenario depicting what exactly the expected effects will be.
Consultants are often unsure of how many slides their presentations should have. A general rule of thumb is that one slide takes around a minute to present. So using that as a guide, you can estimate the number of slides your PPT should ideally have.
Long PPTs should be broken up into sections so that the audience is not overwhelmed and saturated with the information being presented.
