A presenter should prepare a reasonable number of slides, which are not exceeding 15 minutes. Typically, one slide is presented per one minute.

Use large font sizes to read slides without efforts, typically 24-pt or more. Slide header sizes are typically 32-pt or more. Use 20-pt size as the smallest one in special cases. Also we suggest using Arial, Verdana fonts for better readability.

Each slide should not be overcrowded by text and graphics. Graphics should be designed to illustrate key points and explain the basic ideas. It should be avoided reading slides by the presenter.
