How to Improve Your PowerPoint Presentation Skills

PowerPoint is a great tool from Microsoft that makes any presentation look more professional, regardless of how long you've been speaking in public. It is very important now days to learn PowerPoint so you will be able to create powerful presentations at school, work or anywhere it is needed. Here are several PowerPoint presentation tips that will help you get the most out of this helpful software program:

1. Decide what your main goal, or big idea is. This sounds like an obvious point, but this is a big key in creating a good presentation. Before you begin your presentation, you must know the main point you want your audience to take away from your talk. This will make it easier to choose headlines, slide titles and bullet points throughout your presentation.

2. Select a template from the menu. If you don't know that much about graphic design, and don't have time to take PowerPoint training in this area, it's a feature that Microsoft built in to this program to make it more user friendly.

3. Use pictures to add punch to your presentation. Not every presentation will have the need for a picture. However, if your presentation does need this visual punch, PowerPoint has the Microsoft® Clip Organizer, which makes it simple for you to insert images in your presentation.

4. Add a chart or diagram to make it easier for your audience to understand. People absorb and grasp data in different forms. Some like a narrative in words, and others like numbers presented in a chart format. To find the commands for diagrams and charts, at the Insert menu you simply click on Chart or Diagram.

PowerPoint lets you use two- or three-dimensional types of charts, with dozens of different chart styles. This will help you customize your presentation to you and your audience's tastes. If you want, you can also make a flowchart using the diagram features in PowerPoint.

5. Practice using the Rehearse Timings setting with your presentation. This is one of PowerPoint's best features. It's important to practice your presentation as many times as possible, so you can get the timing of your talk down until it's almost second nature. The better you know your presentation, the more relaxed and effective you'll be when it comes time to present.

6. To write content quickly, use the Outline View. If you're crunched for time in developing your presentation, click the Outline tab in the left panel of your PowerPoint window. When thoughts and ideas come to you, jot them down and press Enter. These can be slide titles, or bullet points within a slide.
