To ensure your Powtoon slideshow is a success, keep in mind these tips and tricks while you’re creating your slideshow.
Keep your audience on their toes. Whether in person or online, find ways to break up the monotony of information and keep your audience engaged. Tell stories or use real-life scenarios to connect the information to everyday work. Inject occasional humor through jokes, memes, or videos. Present confidently through your tone, words, and body language. Be human and approachable; invite questions from your audience (even if it’s just through email if the format doesn’t allow real-time Q&A), and speak in a way that helps your audience connect with you as a person.
Slides, videos, and other visual materials can enhance your presentation, but if you struggle with the technology, they can detract from it too. Adopt an easy-to-use slideshow maker to put together visual displays that reinforce your information and aid in your audience’s understanding and retention. Include infographics to simplify complex concepts. Use templates to create a consistent look and feel. Add high-quality videos to help increase information retention and memorability. Include slides that highlight the main points of your presentation; include an embedded webcam recording if you’re presenting remotely to maintain a human connection with your audience.
When creating a slideshow presentation, you have a lot of information and context to get across. Resist the urge to try and get everyone up to speed in a single presentation. Less is more when it comes to slideshows and holding the attention of your audience. Develop a detailed outline so your information flows well. Run through your presentation in advance and time it. If possible, record it and re-watch the presentation in its entirety to see if portions drag, transition awkwardly, or are unnecessary. Be brutal with edits. The longer you speak, the less your audience will remember. Be selective about what you include and boil it down to the most important points.

“Obvious fact of the day: If you have a boring headline, your audience will think your entire presentation is boring. Yes, that goes for your videos, email and every other medium you use to engage with your audience and tribe.”
“PowerPoint is the most universal presentation program. Whether used by businessmen or teachers, it’s used by over 500 million people worldwide. Unfortunately, PowerPoint has become uninspiring to its users because of its limitations with design assets and animation.”
“It’s no secret that mandatory training sessions and HR presentations aren’t exactly at the top of everyone’s priority list. Most employees simply go through the motions to meet the requirements and move on to “more important” tasks – but as an HR professional, you know the content of these sessions is critical to long-term company and workplace success.”
