Find out how much time you need to take according to your slides

  • Time each slide according to the amount of information it has on it. Slides with few bullet points may take one minute and slides with more content may take more than five minutes. This way, you will know how much time you will take.
  • Slides that have no multimedia and contain a lot of information should be thoroughly explained. Do not stress on the time aspect for these particular slides because it is more important to know your audience understands the information.
  • Space your points out so you can go through them quickly. More time will be spent if you club together many points in one slide.
  • Remember to practice with your audiovisual equipment before your presentation to ensure you are familiar with how to use it, and that it all works properly.
  • Record the amount of time the visual aspect of your presentation needs.
