Speaker Time Keeping

Allow a couple of minutes in your assigned time slot for the Event Emcee to introduce you. Regularly check your time to ensure you do not go overtime.

Tips for Developing Your PowerPoint Presentation

  • To ensure your presentation is easily visible from any seat in the room, please use the following minimum font sizes:

    Title: Bold Typeface minimum 40 pt size
    Subtitles: Bold Typeface minimum 32 or 36 pt size
    Text and Figures: Bold Typeface minimum 24 or 28 pt size
    Note: San- Serif fonts e.g. Arial or Verdana are easier to read in a large room

  • Consider a format that is a skeletal outline of the keynote presentation
  • Include visual aids (graphs, tables, illustrations) in PowerPoint slides whenever possible that can be easily viewed in a large room
  • Embed graphs or figures into the document as independent objects; do not dynamically link from other programs.
  • Attempt to limit file size to 25 MB and less. Photos for slides can be compressed and saved in a lower resolution.
  • Disable any automatic advance timer on your file.
  • Keep the slides simple. Too much information on slides makes them hard for attendees to read/see
  • The 6×6 readability rule: no more than six words per line and six lines per “page” (i.e., Arial font size 40).
  • Use upper and lower case letters rather than block: ALL CAPS CAN BE DIFFICULT TO READ.
  • Lines that are used for emphasis should be bolder than background lines or borders.
  • Use contrasting text and background colors (white or yellow text on blue or black background).
  • Avoid using the color red as it tends to bleed into the background and is generally difficult to read.
  • Paragraphs should be clearly separated using a blank line. Lists should be organized using figures, dashes or bullet points. Please keep in mind that graphics and charts must be read from a considerable distance.
  • To ensure a safety zone for over-projection, leave a ¼-inch border, with no text or graphics, around your slide. Otherwise, logos close to the border of your slide may be cut off.
  • For a quick readability check: Stand back ten feet from your 14” monitor. If you cannot read the text clearly, your point size is too small for projection.
