Business proposal is important for individuals who wants to set up a new company, or promoting new products and services to your future clients; or selling effective business ideas in a profitable price for your prospective buyers. The most common problem that every presenters encounter is that delivering such a lengthy business proposal could actually turn off audiences' attention. You must deliver relevant messages within short durations. There are several ways to boost your presentation effectively with Powerpoint presentation slides.
You do not have to include everything in your slides.
All of the contents are included in your business proposal handouts. Your audiences might have (or not) read your handouts in advance. Based on the handouts, you need to summarize the contents from every chapter before putting it into your slides. For example, if you want to show your main objectives or mission statement of your company to your audiences, list out 2-3 objectives per slide. On the other hand, you need to improvise for the elaboration of these main objectives beforehand in order to capture your audiences' attention. In other words, it is pointless of you if you include every contents from your handouts into your slides; which produces non-interactive communication with your audiences.
Use simple layouts and suitable fonts in your slides.
Basically, you use any layouts for your presentation. If you want to make it simple and clear, it is advisable to use plain colored backgrounds with black colored Arial or Century Gothic font. Make sure the font size is greater than size 40. Avoid complicated backgrounds that could distort the whole display in your slides.
Minimize the use of complicated multimedia in your slides.
If you are preparing Powerpoint presentation on your own, embedding multimedia such as video and music could be distracting to your audiences. Furthermore, you need more time to improvise for the video contents. This could only make you feel more nervous and therefore, it will affect your speech presentation.
