Slides are scenery


So you prepared your content, you’ve
designed your slides, now it’s time to stand up and deliver. Maybe you don’t
know where to stand or what to do with your hands or how to look at. But just breathe, shake it out, you’ve got this. Hi I’m Cat this is Canva Design School
and we want you to think about your slides and scenery. They are the
supporting cast they’re not the main show. They’re not the main show in the
sense that you don’t want the audience to have to read your slide to get your
point, the slides should just anchor them quickly give you the point and then you
are actually the main attraction. With every presentation there’s a three-way
relationship going on between your audience, your slides and you. What’s
important is that you think about your slides as scenery, they are there to help
visualize what you’re saying, they are not there as your teleprompter, don’t
read from them. If you followed our previous episodes your slides will have
one point per page with minimal text and meaningful visuals, any long sentences
will be in your presenter notes or printed as handouts. Your audience is
there to hear from you so go on step away from your slides and connect with
them eye to eye. Thanks for watching, I bet you can’t
wait for the next episode.
