How is a presentation similar to a radio broadcast?
You could have a steam train, if you’d just lay down your tracks! You could have an aeroplane flying, if you bring your blue sky back!
I love the music of the 80’s! I was coming up the Cajon pass from Los Angeles when this Peter Gabriel song was playing on the radio. I was rocking my head, moving my shoulders and singing out loud when suddenly…
‘tschhhhhhhhhhhhhh….’ I wanna be… ‘tschhhhhhhhhhhhhh….’ would you, ‘tschhhhhhhhhhhhhh….’ Tut..Tut..’tschhhhhhhhhhhhhh….’
Damn it! STATIC! NO RADIO SIGNAL!
Presentations are a lot like radio broadcasts. Just as a bad signal can disconnect you from the radio station, a poorly designed presentation can disconnect you from your audience! A poorly designed slide reduces your audience’s ability to understand your point with clarity. How you design your slide can either function as well as an XM Radio signal or as poorly as KMVN 93.9 FM 80 miles away from the tower!
How does this service work?
You send your word or text document to me with all the information I need to build your presentation along with any relevant images and graphics you would like to use in your presentation.
I will then, spend some time thinking about your copy and come up with appropriate images for your presentation. Mind you, all images that I use in your presentation will be royalty free licenced and purchased images fromFotolia.com or a similar website, not images used without copyright permission from doing a google search! I will then create a stunning presentation that will take your idea from plain text to va va voom PowerPoint presentation in a matter of days! You will get a chance to see the finished product, suggest changes to it if necessary and get the final presentation back for your big day!
How long will it take from the time I place my order?
Once you hire me and send me all the relevant files, I typically take 7-10 business days for final delivery.
It takes time, a structured thought process and a lot of energy to make a memorable presentation.
So I answer these questions to design your presentation.
- How strong is the opening of the presentation?
- Does it have a unique and memorable title and title slide graphics?
- What does the flow of the presentation feel like?
- Is the transition from one topic to another smooth and well planned?
- Are there “Connectors” in place that ease the movement from idea to idea? Or does the flow feel choppy?
- How text heavy are the slides?
- Is your audience going to read the presentation and then go back to texting or browsing the web on their phones?
- Are you using appropriate images for the slide design?
- Does the design of the slides use proper design rules?
- Are there bullet points in each slide? Can that be reduced or eliminated?
- Am I following the principles of CRAP in this presentation? (CRAP stands for Contrast, Repetition, Alignment and Proximity.)
- Are the diagrams and data presented easy to understand and appropriate for the context being presented?
- Does the closing slides have a strong call to action?
- Does the closing slide tell me what you want me to do next?
