6 Tips for Designing, Protecting and Sharing Slides

Are you protecting your original work, or shooting it out to the world?

Today I re-worked a client’s slide show for a seminar presented by a Medical Doctor, used to bring in new clients for her health and wellness coaching business. In my opinion (okay, and from 35+ years in graphic design, and 25+ years as a professional speaker) it needed “tweaks” to standardize the format and images, and add a bit more professionalism.

Consider these tips for your Slides:
1. © Copyright your intellectual property; at least add the © symbol to the bottom of your slides, in 10 point type on the LEFT hand side (use the MASTER SLIDE, or cut-and-paste duplicate on the each).
2. Add your LOGO small to the bottom RIGHT hand side.
3. Put your name, title, company and logo on the title slide under the title of your presentation.
4. If you have a special offer, post it clearly on the slide, while you speak to it.
5. Put your contact information on the final slide, and leave it showing for the remainder of your program.
6. IF you decide to release, distribute or post your slides, consider removing the “extra” talking slides, and post a PDF version, not the PPT or PPTX versions, as someone could “lift” your original work and use it.
