You want to keep the slides simple, basic and “not busy”. The focus of the presentation needs to be on the presenter, not on how clever the slides are or a lot of redundant information. The guide here is no more than 5-6 bullets per page and no more than 5-6 words per bullet. The slides can have photos and logos on them but no “action effects” to detract from the presenter or the content of the presentation.
- Cover slide: Title, who you are and the date of delivery
- Mission Statement: What the organization stands for

- So that: An informed decision can be made by management on the implementation of this exciting new facility
