Speech is essentially an activity in which a person communicates verbally. However, as the time goes by, many people create their own speech session accompanied by presentation slides. So, what are the tips for an insightful slide presentation without distracting the flow of speech?
Use Image Assets on Slide
The simplest idea is to display a fullscreen image on each slide. This can keep your audience focused on yourself (who is speaking). They understand better about the context you are talking because of the direct correlation with images that you are showing.
Avoid Too Much Details
Remember, you will have a speech, not a full package of product presentation. Avoid too much details in your presentation slides (e.g. many words and terms in your slides). Keep it super simple, even if you want to put a statement on the slide, you can type a slice of your speech conclusion and made in a large font size, yet also limit only one conclusion for every slide.
Avoid Excessive Animation Effects
DoctorSlide recommends that you might be better avoid any excessive animation/transition on presentation slides specifically designed for speech. Why? This is to ensure the flawless of your session (without worrying about any technical errors). If you are really intent to have transition, then you can apply with approximately 1-2 seconds of duration. Always do a quick rehearsal in running your slide presentation before D-Day.
Of course you can contact DoctorSlide for further assistance in crafting a good looking and professional designed presentation. Have a good speech!
