Reblog: Top 12 Most Annoying PowerPoint Presentation Mistakes (8 of 12)

Spelling mistakes, grammar errors and poorly used punctuation will stand out like a sore thumb.

8. Using a Poor-Quality Presentation

This is a huge problem if you have checked over your presentation before presenting it. You need to make sure that your presentation is high-quality and free from errors, otherwise, you’ll be harming your own credibility as a presenter and people won’t take you seriously.

Since your slides shouldn’t have much text on them anyway, any errors, such as spelling mistakes, grammar errors and poorly used punctuation will stand out like a sore thumb. It’s essential that you check your presentation and proofread it to make sure that it’s perfect. You can use tools like ProWritingAid for checking grammar and proofreading tools like Ox Essays to guarantee this level of quality.

You’ll also want to fact check any figures or statements you include to make sure they are correct, to stop the spread of misinformation.
