12 Engaging Presenter Behaviors to Keep Your Audience Awake

12 Engaging Presenter Behaviors to Keep Your Audience Awake

"I want to engage my audience," is what over half of the presenters I coach tell me. Here's what I tell them. First, many people in your audience are tired—probably at least a third of them just don't get enough sleep. They're sitting there hoping they won't embarrass themselves by nodding off. Part of your job is to help them stay awake, to actually pay attention and consider what you are saying. Next time you practice a presentation, note how many of the following strategies you actually use. Then add a couple more. You don’t want your audience to look like this.

Claudyne Wilder explains ways to keep your audience awake.

Gradient Fills for Slide Backgrounds in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Gradient Fills for Slide Backgrounds in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Gradient fills are typically blended fills between two or more colors that graduate and merge from one color to another -- they are sometimes also called fountain fills or blended fills in other programs. Other than applying gradients as shape fill, you can also apply Gradient fills to your Slide Background. However, make sure that the two or more colors that you use for your Gradient work well with text and other foreground elements on all your slides.

Solid Fills for Slide Backgrounds in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

April 29, 2016

Solid Fills for Slide Backgrounds in 
        PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

PowerPoint's Slide Backgrounds can be filled with a solid color, a gradient, a texture or a picture, or even one of PowerPoint's built-in patterns. We explored a generic walkthrough on changing the Slide Background in our Format Slide Background in PowerPoint 2016 tutorial. This tutorial explores how you can use a solid color as the fill for your Slide Background -- solid color fills have the advantage of showing a large expanse in just one color. This does keep the slide uncluttered and draws the audience's attention away from the background to the foreground elements -- and that's a good thing! Unless you use a bright orange, a fluorescent yellow or some other striking color as a background for your slide! So do choose your colors with caution - neutral colors such as white, grey, black, blue, and green always work better.
