NWCPHP has created a series of videos on effective slide presentation design.

Strong communication skills are an important part of any job, and for public health practitioners, this includes the ability to give effective presentations. 

In NWCPHP's 2013 training needs survey, fifty-nine percent of public health practitioners surveyed identified creating effective presentations as a high training need. Specific technologies, such as PowerPoint, were also mentioned as areas of training interest.

While visual aids, such as PowerPoint slides, can be used to enhance a presentation, when used incorrectly, visuals can just as easily detract from a speaker's message.

NWCPHP has created a series of short educational videos on effective slide design, covering topics such as finding and using images, presenting data, using layout and grids, and choosing a font and color scheme. The videos are targeted to NWCPHP Hot Topics in Practice presenters, but are useful to a wide range of presenters.

Watch the video series on effective slide design to begin building better presentations.

In addition to these videos, practitioners can also explore NWCPHP's Effective Presentations toolkit and archived Hot Topics webinar, Using Slides Effectively in Presentations.
