"Keep It Super Simple" or abbreviated KISS may be one of the most popular abbreviations you've ever heard. This abbreviation is closely related to the secrets of how to make your Powerpoint presentation slides content capable of reaching the greatest attention of your audience.
Imagine if you only have 15 minutes to do the presentation and you are only allowed to show 1 or 2 presentation slides in front of the panelists. What will you do? Will you put all the words or data into the slide? Of course not. You as a creator or speaker must be someone who knows best what the core of your presentation is and why your presentation is important to listen to. Therefore, keep the content on your slide as simple as possible so that panelists can focus on what you are talking about while the presentation slides serve as the key words of the conversation you describe.
Here are some of DoctorSlide's internal tips that you can use as simple presentation content:
- Write in one short sentence why your presentation is important (example: the purpose / background of the presentation material)
- What to expect from the audience (do some simple research before creating the content)
- A key theme related to your presentation
- Data conclusions (in the form of points), if you have to use graphs, we suggest in the form of infography where one slide ideally contains only one conclusion.
- Make sure all the languages you use are common to be understood by the panelists or the presentation listeners.
We as DoctorSlide team always believe that whatever the theme of the presentation is created, it will always belongs to one main idea or we usually refer to as an umbrella topic that can easily remind you to explain various other details verbally. Feel free to contact DoctorSlide to help you sharpen your visual idea visually!
