Tips for Creating your PowerPoint Presentation

Body Text:

  • Use a font that is easy to read. Arial, Verdana or Calibri tend to be the easiest to read on screens
  • Font should be no smaller than 18pt
  • Align text left. Centered text is harder to read
  • Write in point form, not complete sentences
  • Include 4-5 bullet points per slide
  • Avoid wordiness and clutter: A headline, a few bullet points, maybe an image – anything more than that and you risk losing your audience.


  • Heading font should be bigger than your body text.


  • Put dark text on a white background. This is easiest to read. If you must use a dark background – for instance, if your company uses a standard template with a dark background – make sure your text is quite light (white, cream or light grey) and increase the font size.

Images, Charts and Diagrams:

  • A chart, diagram or image can often convey much more to your audience than text
  • Don’t use low resolutions images as these can appear blurry on the screen.

Slide Timing:

  • Use 1-2 slides per minute of your presentation.

rapid fire presentations

Rapid oral presentations have been allocated 3 minutes during the concurrent sessions to deliver a key message on their research. Each rapid oral presentation may use a maximum of 3 slides including the introduction/title slide, message/content, and a conclusion/end slide where applicable. 

Please view the tips above for preparing and formatting your PowerPoint presentation.

Poster Presentation

Posters may be presented as a hardcopy poster.

Hard Copy Posters

  • The poster size is A0 (841 mm wide x 1188 mm high).  Poster orientation must be portrait.
  • It is the author’s responsibility to place their posters on the boards using Velcro (authors to supply own Velcro).
  • Posters are numbered. Please ensure your poster is placed under the correct number. 
  • The poster title should appear across the top of the poster.  The recommended size for lettering of titles is 25mm high e.g. Arial font size 96 in bold face type.
  • The author/s name, address and organisation should appear below the title in 24 – 32 point font. 
  • The recommended minimum size for headings and sub-headings is 15 mm high e.g. Arial font size 48 point in bold face type. 
  • The recommended minimum size of letters in the text is 8 mm high e.g. Arial font size 32 point.  Recommended line spacing is at least 1.5.
  • The logos of the author/s and any assisting organisations should be placed in an appropriate position, usually at the bottom of the poster.
  • Use contrasting colours where appropriate in charts, diagrams etc.
  • If you wish to present your poster on a freestanding banner, please contact Bella Lenti at Iceberg Events via email ([email protected]).‚Äč
