A good slide reinforces the talk of the presenter. It supports them with visuals.
Here are 9 Top mistakes presenters make when creating ‘visual’ slides.
1. Using pictures that say exactly what the words do.
Issue: They add no value.
Solution: Use insightful pictures that add value or use graphs instead.
2. Using clichéd Clipart
Issue: They bring down the value and credibility of your content
Solution: Use professional photos, diagrams or icons.
3. Using photos not connected to the presentation
Issue: They just distract your audience.
Solution: Simple dots and arrows can convey far more meaning than unrelated images!
4. Using images of people without reason.
Issue: Audience attention gets hijacked by the images
Solution: Use relevant silhouettes or icons where appropriate
Issue: Audience struggles to process too much information in one go.
Solution: Simplicity adds power to your message! Use visual “chunking” to the group and simplify.
6. Using pictures for decoration.
Issue: Your slides may be remembered, but the message won’t be.
Solution: Visuals are not an after-thought! They need to convey insights.
7. Don’t use facts when you want to convey emotions!
Solution: Use a relevant photo to connect with the emotions of your audience.
8. Using default templates
Issue: It says, “You don’t care enough to customize or go beyond”.
Solution: If you have something interesting and different to say, let your slides reflect that!
9. Too much variety in look and feel of slides
Issue: Audience grows tired reorienting themselves for each slide.
Solution: Use a consistent look & feel so your audience is focused on the message.
