The Art of Preparing Slides

As soon as you know you are going to speak, begin by preparing your slides. Choose titles, key words, graphics, citations, and think about color and design. Everything will become easier once you have prepared the slides. Unknown to you, all the time you are preparing slides, your mighty subconscious mind is preparing the ground for the words with which you will explain your slides. As you create your slides you are like a farmer planting seeds from which a garden will grow.

Today most scientists design and prepare their slides by using a software program, such as Microsoft's PowerPoint, to prepare either 1) a set of individual transparencies, which will be placed by hand on an overhead projector, or 2) a set of transparencies on a CD or a flash stick, which will be projected through a computer. Which way you choose to present is unimportant. Choose whichever way feels most comfortable to you. Each style has its advantages, and each is equally good. A wise presenter, however, carries a set of individual transparencies as a protection against electrical failure or unexpected computer incompatibility.

A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words.
