While preparing PPT slides, you should consider following important points.
❒ 1. While preparing a seminar, focus on the key points, the content.
❒ 2. Read it aloud, you will quickly find if something went wrong.
❒ 3. Use simple and straightforward language to convey the message.
❒ 4. Start the seminar with a catching introduction.
❒ 5. Tell your audience why your seminar topic is interesting and important and different.
❒ 6. Spell your words correctly, there should be no typo error.
❒ 7. Make sure that the audiences are hearing you first and then the slides.
❒ 8. Try to make it short, interesting and audience oriented.
❒ 9. Don’t spend much time on scientific points unless it is stated.
❒ 10. When you complete your seminar, tell all the points in a summary.
❒ Shouldn't be scared of facing audience. If you've stage fear (lot of people do), get rid of it by practicing it. I got rid of my stage fear by choosing to participate in college cultural fest in singing competition.
❒ Should allot enough time for your project members to explain their part during presentation. Again, don't add 10 slides per member. Even 2-3 slides/member will do. But have each member present quality content in their part of presentation.
❒ Should dress up well. Formals is natural choice. But what to wear - is your own decision.
❒ Should not speak faster just to appear fluent with the language. Also, do not fake accent.
❒ Should be ready with everything at least 30 minutes in advance.
❒ Should not have wavy hands, shaky legs. Get rid of stage fear.
❒ Should not be over confident even if you know your topic is the best.
❒ Should look at the judges and your audience with confidence. Don't ignore a part of audience. Look at everyone so that they feel connected.
❒ Should try to have an earlier slot for your presentation and set the benchmark high for the rest of the participants (helps in competitions).
❒ Should be prepared to answer questions related to your seminar. This can be achieved by preparing well.
❒ Should get your presentation demoed in front of someone who's better at English, if possible.
