    • Co-presenters will be required to register by the date mentioned above if they wish to present on the day.
  • Oral presentation must be a maximum of 20 minutes in length, including Q&A.
  • Videos in your PPT slides are to be embedded in your slide rather than inputted as external links

  • Please submit your PPT Presentation to Cherono via email or WeTransfer for large files by Monday 12 August 2024. Presenters who choose not to send their PPT by this date are responsible for bringing your presentation to the conference.

Tips for Creating your PowerPoint

Body Text:

  • Use a font that is easy to read. Arial, Verdana, or Calibri tend to be the easiest to read on screens
  • Font should be no smaller than 18pt. Align text left. Centered text is harder to read
  • Write in point form, not complete sentences
  • Include 4-5 bullet points per slide
  • Avoid wordiness and clutter: A headline, a few bullet points, maybe an image – anything more than that and you risk losing your audience
Headings:
  • Heading font should be bigger than your body text
Colour:
  • Put dark text on a white background. This is easiest to read. If you must use a dark background – for instance, if your company uses a standard template with a dark background – make sure your text is quite light (white, cream, or light grey) and increase the font size
Images, Charts and Diagrams:
  • A chart, diagram or image can often convey much more to your audience than text
  • Don’t use low resolutions images as these can appear blurry on the screen
Slide Timing:
  • Use 1-2 slides per minute of your presentation
