It would be pretty useful for your seminar to be accompanied by presentation materials. When we talk about presentation materials, we are referring to materials for yourself as the speaker and also for your audience. Microsoft Powerpoint and handouts are two reliable sources that can aid you as well as your audience.
Majority of presentations nowadays are done with a computer. In fact, most presenters will use Microsoft Powerpoint to create their visual reference when they are speaking. This program has a simple interface and it’s extremely easy to use. However, do not be fooled by its simplicity. It still has the ability to create professional and formal presentation slides too. Hence, with the aid of Microsoft Powerpoint, you won’t have to worry about neglecting the key points in your seminar and/or your audience getting bored. With something on screen to assist you, you can focus more on your charisma. Likewise, with something on screen for your audience to focus on, they will be able to relate better to both you and what you are actually presenting. This can be the difference between an ordinary seminar and a good seminar.
Aside from the visual reference from Microsoft Powerpoint, handouts are a great way to keep your audience focus on your seminar. If you are using Microsoft Powerpoint for your presentation, you will be glad to know that handouts can be easily printed out directly from there. All you have to do is to select “handouts” under the print options. Do take note that you’ll be given the option of choosing the number of slides per page, which ranges from one to nine. It is usually recommended that you select three slides per page. With this option selected, your handout will be printed out with the slides along with lines beside. This allows your audience to take down notes directly on these handouts. This will ensure that your audience will have something to take away from your seminar and at the same time, make their experience much more fruitful.
At the end of the day, your audience would want to leave your seminar knowing that they have learnt something new or enhance their knowledge. As good as a speaker you are, you won’t be able to guarantee that what you have shared with your audience, remains in their memory after the seminar. That’s where such presentation materials come into the picture to ensure that your time and effort do not go to waste.
