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.

Headings:

  • Heading font should be bigger than your body text.

Colour:

  • 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

2-MINUTE ORAL POSTER INSTRUCTIONS

Due to required program changes to the conversion to a virtual event, 2-minute oral poster presentations are to be pre-recorded and will be uploaded to a dedicated page on the conference website.

A recommended way of doing this is recording yourself in Zoom. Start a Zoom meeting, share your screen with your poster, and press "record". Zoom will prompt you to save the recording when you're finished.

Please send your poster (designed to the specifications above) and 2-minute recording to [email protected] by Wednesday 27 October for upload to the website. 

 

WORKSHOP INSTRUCTIONS

Workshops will be presented on Wednesday 3 November 2021 via the Pexip platform. Workshops are an optional ticket to delegates. Workshops will be a maximum of 1.5 hours in length and should include time for a discussion or Q&A.

All presentations must be created using Microsoft PowerPoint.

Note: PowerPoint presentations are required in 16:9 (widescreen) format. Please feel free to contact Mika Roldan via [email protected] should you require assistance with ensuring your presentation is in this format.
