PowerPoint Slide Suggestions

  • Keep in mind how far away the audience is likely to be in large rooms.
  • Try to keep text size at least 18 to 20 points for readability. If you can't fit everything on a slide that size, you should probably break it into two or more slides.
  • Use high-contract colors. Don't user red, dark green, or black text or graphics against darker backgrounds. Best colors are white, yellow, light green, and aqua (light blue).
  • Make sure arrows and other connectors between graphics also have high contrast.
  • Do not overdo animation on slides. If you have an animation, try to keep the number of mouse clicks per slide to a minimum and practice with your slides the day before your session to be familiar with the interaction.

Note: Esri does not provide a PowerPoint template for your presentation.
