Roar Sweetly aka Make Great aka Charmaine is a TYS reader and fellow presentation designer and educator. She recently debuted her blog on presentation development, Make Great, by uploading her first Slideshare, “Wild Slides: 20 Tips to Improve your PowerPoint Presentations.” This simple and succinct deck provides viewers with 20 practical tips for developing, designing, and delivering slides to an audience. Charmaine excels in my biggest area of growth–keeping ideas simple and information delivery digestible. Three of my favorite tips are Content comes before slides, Don’t treat slides as a teleprompter, and Work hard on your slides. I believe the first two tips are manifestations of the third. If one works hard on one’s slides, there will be great attention to what needs to be said (and why) over decoration and the presenter will know to develop slides that serve as the enhancement of and not the container of information.
