Presentations (Powerpoint)

Introduction

It is important that whenever you are representing the Council you use our corporate PowerPoint template.

Keep words to a minimum and use six or less bullet points per slide

The template provides a space for concise headings and for bulleted text in the corporate typeface. If you are unsure that an external computer has Gill Sans installed, use Arial instead.

Successful PowerPoint presentations contain little text and provide cues for a strong verbal presentation. It is acceptable to use images or diagrams to give your presentation more impact but never use clipart.

Using the template

Title slide

  • Use the text in the grey band (in capitals) to give the subject of your presentation. The text lower in the space below can be used for a sub heading or to say who is giving the presentation. Do not alter the font size or colour.
  • It is acceptable to use a suitable image in this space but never clipart.
  • The top slide here shows the sub heading on a plain background and the lower one reversed out over a large image.
  • Always try and avoid text or images in the column below our green corporate mark.

Following slides

  • The grey band at the top should be used for the title of your slide. This is in capitals. There is space for two lines of text if necessary.
  • You can add your main text in the space below, either as bullet points (max six per slide) or as simple text over an image.
  • If you use text on over an image make sure it is readable. Sometimes a simple image or diagram on its own has most impact.
  • The top slide here shows the bullets on a plain background and the lower one reversed out over a large image.
  • Always try and avoid text or images in the column below our green corporate mark.
