How To Make Simple And Elegant Business Powerpoint Presentations

Most presenters have remarkable skills in making unique Powerpoint slides which contain related images and text-contents; and complicated multimedia such as video and music clips. Audiences will be mesmerized by these complicated presentations that cause many people to adopt this style of making complicated slides.

Every presenter has his own style, and you do not have to imitate the styles of other presenters. For example, everyone wants to become Steve Jobs – CEO and co-founder of Apple Inc., who is a brilliant presenter who has his own remarkable style of delivering his speeches. You have to be what you are, and show them your very best.

Making a simple and elegant presentation slides can be done with ease, which includes only text-contents. Only a few related images might be included in these slides. It is suitable for non-creative business presenters who have not much time in slide preparation. This method is known as the Classy-Black-and White Method.

What is the Classy-Black-and-White Method all about?

In this method, please use plain white background as your slide layout. Use black font color in all slides. You can choose to use either text box or WordArt for displaying your text-contents in your slides. Ideally, it is better to use “Title and Text” for the text layouts. It makes easier for you to input your text-contents into your slides. Bullets are not used along with the text-contents, and you can enhance the impact of the text-contents by manipulating the text-alignment and font size. It is preferably to use Century Gothic font which it looks elegant and easily viewable for audiences. If you want to introduce yourself at the beginning of the presentation, you can create a plain-black-and-white “business card” slide.

On the other hand, the Zig-Zag Method depicts quote-like contents showing your audiences about company goals, mission statement, and products testimony. Based on the name of this method, it means that these text-contents are placed as quote-like texts in a zig-zag orientation. It works perfectly with italic Century font.
