Our source slide presented here has a lot of text blocks that are very difficult to understand and read.

So let me show you now how to turn this boring slide into an appealing graphic presentation.

HR Metrics Dashboard Slide After the Redesign

Look how the redesigned slide changes everything. We simply distributed the bullet points in a circle and added color and icons. As a result, we’ve got an eye-catchy presentation!

Let’s analyze them together.

I believe you will agree that the final look is a game changer.

See how we recreated this slide in just 4 steps.

Step 1. Reorganize the Order of the Bullet Points

You don’t always need to put the bullet points in a column. As we can see from the picture below, placing them into a circle creates an interesting visualization.

Step 2. Add Some Shapes and Modern-Looking Font

With a little design touch, rearrange the shapes into better-looking ones, and add a circle in the middle of the bullet points. Also, change the classical Times font to a more unique one – in our case we used Calibri.

Step 3. Place Icons for Readability and Understanding

Adding some associated icons to each of the specific HR metrics makes your diagram more understandable and readable.

Step 4. Enrich Your Presentation with more Elements for a Greater Impact

Finally, to make this presentation look astonishing, experiment with additional design elements. In our case, we have added some vivid colors for each of the metrics and outline icons in the corresponding color.

I hope you will find these tips useful and include them in your next presentation.

There are several criteria on what makes an effective presentation slide to be kept in mind.
