Speaker Presentation Guidelines
Below are some guidelines we would like to suggest to speakers when creating presentations:
- Please use digital presentations as overheads can’t be projected. PowerPoint is the preferred software.
- Please use dark text on a light background to ensure maximum legibility.
- Avoid large distracting logos.
- Use plain fonts, preferably 24 point or bigger.
- Scanned images and varying colors can look fuzzy; please ensure they are readable from a distance when enlarged.
