Remember also the following for best practice in the use of bullets…

  • Use bullet points – they improve audience retention
  • Limit Bullet Points and Text (perhaps 5 per slide)
  • Revealing bullet points 1 at a time or all at once is actually a matter of choice, there is no benefit from the point of view of audience retention.
  • You are the main factor in the presentation being successful, PowerPoint is just an aide

We hope this is of some assistance to you in your next presentation.
