5 tips to take your presentation to the next level

Updated: Feb 5

One of the biggest challenges when giving a presentation is making sure that your audience stays engaged. There are many techniques to use to keep people from falling asleep, but which ones work best? Considering most of the population are visual learners- I'd recommend using more visuals to distill your information. They can provide valuable context for complex ideas and also help to break up large amounts of text, making it easier for people to follow along.

However, using visuals effectively can be tricky. Here are 5 tips to help you make sure your visuals enhance your presentation and not confuse your audience:

Step 1: Keep it simple.

If you're using imagery in your presentation, choose visuals that communicate one single idea, rather than trying to cram in too much.

Step 2: Use colour wisely

Bright colours are great for grabbing attention but use them sparingly so that they don’t become overwhelming or distracting.

Step 3: Be consistent

Try to maintain a consistent look and feel throughout your presentation by using the same font, style, and colour scheme across all of your slides. This will help give your presentation a professional and polished appearance.

Step 4: Tell a story with your visuals

Rather than just presenting facts in bullet points, use visuals to illustrate how those facts relate to each other. This will help create a narrative that your audience can follow more easily.

Step 5: Show, don’t tell.

Rather than explaining complex ideas in words, use visuals to show how those concepts work in action. This will make the content more memorable and easier for people to understand.

By using visuals strategically, you can ensure that your presentation stands out from the crowd and keeps your audience engaged. With these tips in mind, you’ll be able to take your presentation skills to the next level!
