If you use drawings, be sure that people understand what you show them. Tell them what they are looking at! There is nothing worse than to reveal a drawing and have everybody wonder what it is. Be sure that the work is large enough for the entire audience to see. Otherwise, put it in handouts and distribute it at the end of your presentation. If you refer to statistics, talk about trends, or compare percent- ages, use a bar or pie chart. It’s much easier for your audience to understand the difference between 67% and 33% if they can visualize it. Bar charts are best because they are the simplest. Use different colours to highlight the bars. Make sure your graphs are uncluttered. Do not have too many bars or pie sections. Also, on the graph, move from the largest item to the smallest - each category on the graph should be progressively smaller than the previous one or vice versa. |
