I’m creating a presentation template and I’m thinking of placing a little navigation on one side of the page to show viewers where they are in the presentation and whats left.
Does this make sense?
Avoid convention when it comes to slides. Lynda.com has a great presentation training for this. Think Steve Jobs, one word on a slide. The slides shouldn’t be the bulk of the information, it should be the centering for the topic. If you wanted to report your company had a $5B sales increase you shouldn’t do it like this:
Sales in 2014: ^$5,000,000,000
Most extreme example like this:
The talk should be the focus and the message the point. When you reveal your slide you can say, “I want to show you a number…It represents Billions in new volume”
