Here some simple rules I follow when creating presentation materials.  Powerpoint can be death, so use it wisely:

Keep It Simple:

  • Use words, not sentences
  • Keywords make the point
  • Speaker fills in the details

Less is more.

Use Headlines in the titles:

  • Key words explain the slide
  • Titles should summarize slides


  • 4~6 Bullets per Slide (not always easy to do)
  • This means more slides with less writing


  • Arial (White on Blue background)
  • Title Sizes are 54
  • Bullet Sizes are 40 -> 36
