With total industry experience of more than 26 years and being in senior management position with a multinational company for almost 10 years, one of my passions is to add value to each of the presentations that I do during a senior management meeting.

These days some of the meetings are face to face in conference rooms but most are Virtual using web and video conference which makes it more and more difficult to make effective presentation.

In this tutorial I will explain, how to make an effective and a killer presentation by adding QuiZ questions and answers in your business presentation. This method will also add interactivity during the presentation which will enable participation of attendees in the meeting. More so in a virtual presentation, if you can make the audience participate, definitely the message you are trying convey is will be accepted by the audience.

Here are few steps to add a QuiZ in PowerPoint to make your presentations more interactive.

Step 1: Power point templates, graphics and icons.

For any presentations you should ensure you have 3 basic components

  • Excellent PowerPoint Templates ,
  • Good Graphics and
  • Creative  Icons

I have done some research in the web and have identified that Presentation Pro has excellent templates, graphics and icons for a reasonable price.

I have created a Sample QuiZ based Business Presentation which you can view below, Click here to Download Example Quiz Presentation.

Step 2: Adding start and exit buttons to initial slide

Step 2A: First Slide

If you are creating a quiz in PowerPoint it is option to have a first slide. It provides a nice transition for you to start the quiz. Following is the image of first slide that I have used in my Quiz.

Step 3: Adding Quiz Question and Answers to the Slide

Step 3 A

Next we will have to add the questions and answers for the quiz.

  • Add the quiz question in the tile of the slide or in any other position that you prefer.
  • Add the answer for the questions with buttons. You can have any number of buttons with answers, in this case I have added 4 buttons.
  • Out of 4 buttons only one button is the correct answer and the other 3 are wrong answers. In this case the button with 2400K is the correct answer. The buttons with 2000K, 2300K and 1500 K are wrong answers.
  • The image below shows the example of the questions and answers that I have added.
