  • PowerPoint Best Practices:
    • Technical:
      • Your presentation must be prepared in PowerPoint2000 or any later PowerPoint Version (MS Windows)
      • Set the slide size of the page to “On-screen show” and landscape orientation in the page set-up section. (Portrait orientation will not be displayed properly)
    • Formatting:
      • Use high-contrast lettering, and not too much text per page (max. 5-10 lines or 15-20 words).
      • Font sizes should be no smaller than size 14 or 16 for maximum visibility.
      • Make sure you use high-contrast colors for the best definition of your text. Please be aware that red letters or lines are usually not visible.
      • Avoid special characters: To avoid any compatibility problems, please do not use special characters (i.e. “, Ö, Ø, ñ, ?, ®, ý, }, { etc) to name your presentation files
    • Content and Organization:
      • As a general rule, you should not present more than 1 slide per minute.
      • Do not read the slides word for word. Visual material provides cues and images to support your verbal presentation.
      • Make sure your presentation has a clear flow from introduction to conclusion. Identify key points and why they are important.
      • Include take-home points. Consider which 2-3 points you want the audience to remember after your presentation.
      • The inclusion of a disclosure slide is mandatory even if you have no conflicts to declare.
      • Less is more! Include relevant information on your slides, supplemented and explained by your verbal presentation.
