It’s vital to do a final run-through once the PowerPoint presentation has been completed. Do this in the Full Screen View so that you’ll be able to see the slides as they will be screened to the audience. Check for legibility of text and images and replace those elements that don’t work. In business presentations, the readability of numbers and visibility of graphs should be ensured. Also run a spell check with the Spell Checker to ensure there are no mistakes in the text. Errors in spelling and grammar will be magnified in PowerPoint presentations and can prove to be distracting, taking attention away from the content.
PowerPoint has a number of features that can help business consultants create inspiring presentations. It’s important for consultants to know how to apply these as business presentations are very often the means of convincing clients and management to buy into ideas and solutions. They should connect with audience members and excite their imagination.
The successful business consultant is the one who can creatively present concepts in PPTs through more than just plain text and translate ideas into concrete initiatives. By mastering the use of PowerPoint tools, consultants can turn a run of the mill business presentation into a surefire winner.
