The idea is that my fire department has sent me on assignment to work with one of USA fire department for six months and in the end of this assignment I have to bring a new idea in order to develop my department, I have chosen one of the program that we don't have it in our department(Mentor Program for new firefighters), so I need to create an attractive power point presentation that must convince that higher management to implement this idea.
Remember that I will present this PPT to a high level management, so I except that it will be perfect a presentation. Following is some steps that should be followed:
1-slides design( type of power point design and transiting slide show)
2- Choose your fonts well(Fonts communicate subtle messages in and of themselves, which is why you should choose fonts deliberately. Use the same font set throughout your entire slide presentation, and use no more than two complementary fonts (e.g., Arial and Arial Bold).
3-Keep it Simple(PowerPoint uses slides with a horizontal or “Landscape” orientation. The software was designed as a convenient way to display graphical information that would support the speaker and supplement the presentation).
4-Limit bullet points & text(Your presentation is for the benefit of the audience. But boring an audience with bullet point after bullet point is of little benefit to them. Which brings us to the issue of text)
5-Limit transitions & builds animation(Use object builds and slide transitions judiciously. Object builds (also called animations), such as bullet points, should not be animated on every slide. Some animation is a good thing, but stick to the most subtle and professional (similar to what you might see on the evening TV news broadcast).
6-Use high-quality graphics(Never simply stretch a small, low-resolution photo to make it fit your layout – doing so will degrade the resolution even further. Avoid using PowerPoint Clip Art or other cartoonish line artUse high-quality graphics including photographs. use the plethora of high-quality images available on line (be cautious of copyright issues, however).
7-Have a visual theme, but avoid using PowerPoint templates(You clearly need a consistent visual theme throughout your presentation, but most templates included in PowerPoint have been seen by your audience countless times (and besides, the templates are not all that great to begin with).
8-Use appropriate charts:
Used to show percentages. Limit the slices to 4-6 and contrast the most important slice either with color or by exploding the slice.
b-Vertical Bar Charts.
Used to show changes in quantity over time. Best if you limit the bars to 4-8.
Used to demonstrate trends. For example, here is a simple line chart showing that our sales have gone up every year.
9-Use color well(Color evokes feelings. Color is emotional. The right color can help persuade and motivate. Studies show that color usage can increase interest and improve learning comprehension and retention).
10-Use video or audio(Use video and audio when appropriate. Using video clips to show concrete examples promotes active cognitive processing, which is the natural way people learn)
11-Spend time in the slide sorter(According to the Segmentation Principle of multimedia learning theory, people comprehend better when information is presented in small chunks or segments).
12- Slide number should be at least13 slides, and no more than 15slides.
