What’s worse than sitting through a boring presentation?

Being the one to deliver a boring presentation.

Have you ever looked at the spaced out faces of your audience while you delivered a presentation and thought to yourself, uh-oh, I’m losing them? Or have you published a slide deck full of really useful information, only for it to go ignored? It’s not a good feeling.

How can you create a presentation that will not only grab the attention of your audience but hold onto it as well?

Saying goodbye to typical, boring PowerPoint slides is a good place to start.

Think about the last boring presentation you sat through. What did the slides look like? Did they have a bland color scheme? Were there too many points (or worse, paragraphs) crammed onto one slide? Were the charts and diagrams clunky and hard to understand?

A lot of the time, how engaging a presentation is comes down to the design. When people see the same old boring PowerPoint themes, there’s a good chance they’re going to lose focus.

The demand for creative, engaging visual content is higher than ever. If you want to really capture your audience’s attention, you need to use creative presentation designs. That means mixing up your slide layouts and incorporating compelling images, effective data visualizations, and bold illustrations into your slide decks.

The problem is, if you have very little (or no) design experience, it can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to designing presentations with impact. We’ve got you covered.

Here are seven presentation templates you can use to create attention grabbing slide decks.
