Presentation skills: What do they need to know?

Presentation skills tips: When designing slides for financial presentations don’t import an Excel spreadsheet, keep it simple.

Presentation skills: What do they need to see, or know?

For a presentation to be effective the information needs to be clear and legible (i.e. big enough to read and easily understand). Only put key information on your slide. (e.g. changes in income and expenditures as in the example below).

Dumping a full Excel spreadsheet into a presentation makes the information less effective. Clutter in a presentation causes your audience to tune out and their eyes to glaze over. Keep it simple, changes and relevant information. This enables simpler billboard style slides which engage your audience.Presentation skills what do they need to know
