The words from your mouth can flow as oil during a presentation. However, it would be sticky and boring without complementing them with some visual effects. Hence, in presentation, visual aids are very much important as the audio; they provide sensational appeal to the audience.
Some people do not have issues with the flow of words running with grace like the swiftness of a river flowing down a hill, but the presentation? That is where the issue is. How do I create an appealing business presentation and compelling slides? Well, not to bother, here is how you can step up your creativity in a business presentation.
Vary the template
One of the most important laws of creativity is diversity. Use a different template for each presentation slide. It adds beauty and prevents a boring, visual lecturing. Variety in templates builds a relaxing sensation and confidence in an audience; it tells them that the presenter understands visual narratives. Other than varying templates and background, have colors proper mixed and combined with the background, texts, image icons, etc. Sometimes, you just have to make the slide’s template to correlate with the content of a page. You can import images, patterns, or even animated SVG icons.
Add some sense of animation
In a business presentation, you have to break the barrier and stereotypes of a typical PowerPoint flow. You are presenting business ideas; creativity and a thorough ideation process should be evident in your presentation. With the use of a vector animation software, you can add some amazing animation elements accompanying your presentation.
Use compelling fonts
A business presentation is as formal as the business meeting itself; other than business-minded templates, you should use fonts that also suggest that you mean business (pun intended). Let the fonts be right, simple, yet classic. You don’t want people to squint while they are trying to catch up with what you are explaining and showing them simultaneously. Fonts are very important in business presentations; it should be bold and clear enough (in size) to see from a reasonable distance, keeping those who might have sight issues in mind and it should be a simple design or font option.
Use powerpoint’s shapes
PowerPoint is customized and periodically improved to give a great presentation experience and impression. There are complex shapes, charts, and structures that you can use to make your presentation more appealing to your audience. Instead of using the traditional bullet option to narrate points, you could use chats and shapes that conform to the pattern that best suits your presentation. Step up your game with the software’s shapes.
Make sure objects are properly aligned
When importing shapes, objects, and images into a slide, make sure they are properly aligned. A mistake you do not want to do in a business presentation is to show untidiness. Align your objects rightly within the presentation page layout and columns.
Tip: If your presentation was prepared on a PC with a different OS or software version, it is possible to have your works misaligned from what you have prepared; make sure to always check out your slides on the PC that would do the actual presentation, before you go public.
