____ Slides are organized in a framework that matches a theme
____ Slides are arranged in a logical order
____ Idea transitions lead from one slide to another
____ Every image is “sharp,” not blurred
____ The slide background is simple, uniform and supports your presentation theme. Do not change slide backgrounds from slide to slide

____ Headlines and text are big enough to be seen from the back of the room
____ Text and Headlines use phrases and no more than seven words on a line
____ Practice in front of real people
____ Time the presentation
____ Create storyboards and note cards.
____ Refer to notes. Do not read from slides or from notes
____ Prepare handouts
