ADAPTATION: 5 Examples

ADAPTATION: 5 Examples

Adaptation

Adaptation is the process of adjusting your presentation to suit different conditions or a different audience.

Example One

At first glance, these two slides look completely different. Take a closer look and you’ll see that the information is exactly the same. The identical content is featured in two completely different presentations, and adapted accordingly.

Tip 1: You may need to adjust your slide to suit different sized screens or adapt your content to suit a more diverse audience.


Example Two

The first slide is featured in a live presentation, while key information imparted by the presenter during the slide show is incorporated into the second slide, which is included in the handouts.

Tip 2: Subtle changes made to slides can make a big difference to their overall look and feel.


Example Three

A presentation is designed for projection onto a large screen. When the presenter wants to deliver the same slide show from a laptop, it’s necessary to increase the size of the text to make it easier for the audience to read. Consequently, the slide layout is adapted.

Tip 3: Always think about your presentation from your audience’s point of view.

Example Four

The first slide draws the audience’s attention to the headline information featured in the black box. By removing the box for a subsequent presentation, the audience’s attention shifts to the main body text, which is where the presenter wants the audience to focus.

Tip 4: Ensure that high value information is clearly displayed and highlighted if necessary.

Tip 5: Adapt your presentation to suit what your audience want to see and hear from you.
