Effective conference slides

Last week I attended a digital journalism conference  in London which had an impressive line-up of national and international journalists and technologists from organisations including Buzzfeed, Twitter, the Guardian, BBC and Mashable.

One of the things that struck me the most about many of the speakers were their excellent use of presentation slides – which on reflection should not be surprising at a conference focused on technology and communication.

However all too often conference slides, particularly those used by academics, are not used to their best effect and can distract from, rather than aid the speaker.

As a result I have put together these tips on using effective conference slides which can be viewed on my blog at jobs.ac.uk.
