Text Charts

For word slides–use the 5 x 5 rule (five lines with a maximum of five words per line). This will result in no more than 25 words in the body of the slide (excluding the title). If you need more room, (as in the example below), use more lines, but fewer words. There is no need to repeat every word in your presentation. You simply want to reinforce your main ideas for the audience.

NOTE

It is a good idea to start by analyzing your audience. Once this is done you need to formulate a Position, Action, Benefit statement. You must complete these steps before you separately brainstorm the main ideas and the subpoints of your presentation. You then gather factual information and prepare a blueprint of your presentation. Also prepare any slides, handouts, and notes you will need. And don’t forget to practice!
