Nothing can be more dreary and off-putting for the watching audience than slide after slide of uninterrupted text. Remember, a business document and a PowerPoint presentation have different requirements – a presentation has to be given in a short time and should suit the audience’s collective attention span.
The best way to decrease the density of text on a slide is by using more imagery to support concepts presented in the slide. If you don’t have business diagrams ready, PowerPoint 2007 and newer versions have the really useful SmartArt tool which can be used to create graphics fast. If this doesn’t meet your needs, you can buy and download a variety of business diagrams and tools from 24point0. For example, instead of putting a laundry list of the products or services your company offers, use this nifty portfolio diagram from 24point0 for added visual appeal.
Consultants who don’t have the skills or time to flesh out a proper business presentation can avail of 24point0’s Concept to Creation PowerPoint production service. Just provide 24point0 the outline or sketch of the presentation you require and professional designers will help you bring your vision to life.
