Do you have a presentation to make, but don’t know how exactly you should get started?

Here’s an easy solution to your problem:

Take a break, listen to the radio, and start counting in your head.

You might be thinking: wait a minute. What do numbers have to do with crafting a winning pitch?

If you know how to count all the elements that make up a great presentation, you’ll survive having to craft one – almost as if you were learning the steps to a new dance.

First, identify your central theme. Everything you do – your style, your content, your design, your delivery – will depend on this.

Once you’ve decided on your theme, move on to the second step. Map out good combinations to juggle, that is, what are some great comparisons and contrasts you can take advantage of to make your point clearer?

Then, focus on three important parts of your pitch: the beginning, the middle, and the end. Make these sections flow in a way that make sense, but don’t forget to make them memorable so that you get your audience’s full attention.

Anticipation is the fourth helpful step, where you use some forethought. Think ahead – what can happen after the presentation? List down every possible event that might happen in order to look and sound prepared.

Finally, wrap up your speech in the last five minutes. Don’t end it without having completed your story or message. There are many ways to end your presentation with impact – it’s up to you to decide what final thought you want to leave your audience with.

Numbers are great problem solvers. Work from the basics to come up with a great formula and solve the equation of masterful pitches that seal the deal.

Polish Your Point with PowerPoint’s Comments Feature [Infographic]

Want to digest this blog post in a more visually-compelling manner? We’ve repurposed this topic into a handy infographic. Just scroll down to the bottom of this article to check it out!

What if there comes a need to revise particular copy in each slide, and adding remarks to someone’s deck is the only way to track specific elements?

PowerPoint is more than just a software for creating presentations.

Not only does it allow you to create a visually-appealing deck, but it also lets you pinpoint what needs to be improved and removed to deliver an error-free presentation.

Are you still worrying about how you can give comments without messing up the slide itself? PowerPoint can address your concerns and reduce your workload without missing a spot.

Presenting… PowerPoint’s Comments Feature!

With PowerPoint’s Comments function, you can insert feedback into certain slide objects, allowing you to add, modify, and delete text or visual elements, while giving comments and suggestions to specific objects.

This limits the use of text boxes and shapes, where you can also type in your observations. This method, however, makes it harder for you to adjust and place your remarks on specific slide texts or objects without getting in the way.

Comments enable users to point out unnecessary words or information that can negatively affect your presentation’s overall message.

So before presenting in front of a crowd and delivering your message with informative copy and visuals, make sure to check if:

  • Each point supports the presentation’s main idea to provide a more comprehensive message.
  • There are filler words you can eliminate to convey a more direct and concise approach.
  • Every word or statement is free from any issues regarding punctuation, spelling, or verb tenses.
  • The sentence structure and organization of ideas promote consistency for a smoother presentation flow.

Refine your deck by identifying all the details that can either make or break an otherwise effective presentation.

Here’s an infographic to give you an overview on what to look out for when adding comments and recommendations to specific slide texts with less hassle.
