For me when making a presentation I like to see some creativity with it. I like to see presentation that are more than just words and numbers.Adding graphics and/or backgrounds makes it in a sense “less boring” for those who are being presented to.I also like when there are animations and on the slides.To me this make it look more professional.I can speak for myself by saying I retain information better when I can see and read it compared to just someone telling it to me.
I enjoy making presentations, as these are easy to make but still get your message across. To me this helps to keep the audience engaged in the meeting, as they can stray easy when you just have someone speaking.
For myself, I feel I have a good grasp on making presentations.But if I had an area to improve it would be better language when adding bullet points.Figuring out how to shorten them but still have them detailed.
My perspective on people making presentations is that they should endeavor to make the presentation different from any other type of speech. There should be an effort to ensure that there is sufficient illustration to provide the audience with an image of what the individual making the presentation intends to say. Otherwise, if there is no such illustration, then the presentation would be not much different from a speech, in which case the person making the presentation would simply leave it to the audience’ imagination to try and develop images of what the speaker intends to say.
