If you are just starting out in your journey to become a speaker and sell from stage, you may be feeling daunted by the prospect of preparing your slides presentation… I know it can be easy to spend so much time focusing on your content that you may overlook the finer details that bring the presentation together.
So today, I want to go back to basics and talk to you about the core details that you should be including in your own slides before you begin to consider the content itself.
Now, your presentation is representative of your business, so firstly, ensure that images and fonts are consistent with your business branding. The overall look and feel of your presentation should remind your audience of your business… don’t create the slides as a standalone piece of promotional material… treat them as an extension of your existing marketing.
Does that make sense?
