PowerPoint Presentation Recommendations

Tips for Developing Your
PowerPoint Presentation
The following recommendations are
easy to implement and result in better
communication of the educational
content to the attendees.
Text and Font Guidelines
• Use a Sans Serif font (e.g., Arial or Verdana).
• Use at least a 24 point font.
• Use only one font in your presentation. To
emphasize text, use a different color or style (bold
or italics, but not both).
• For bullet points, use the 6 X 6 rule. One thought
per line with no more than 6 words per line and no
more than 6 lines per slide.
• Do not use all caps except for titles. Start each
line of text with an uppercase character.
Background and Color Guidelines
• Keep the background consistent.
• Use light colored text on a dark background (white
text is preferred on a dark background).
• Keep the design clean, simple and uncluttered.
Upload your Presentation
• Presentations can be submitted in advance of the
meeting via the advanced submission site:
• Onsite speakers must check-in to the Speaker
Ready Room (GWCC, B206) 24 hours prior to
their scheduled presentation.
