Pro Tips for using a Pyramid Slide Template

When creating a pyramid slide, here are a few things to consider.

Label your pyramid appropriately.

Let each section in your pyramid represent one category. Label it appropriately so your audience understands how the pyramid is organized.

Only use a pyramid for topics that are connected.

Your topic has to make sense when arranged in a pyramid. How new employees can get promoted makes sense for a pyramid; how every department relates to each other does not.

Use different colors.

Make the differences between your pyramid levels even clearer by assigning different colors to each one.

Limit the number of sections.

Too many sections in your pyramid will look crowded and complicated. If five sections aren’t enough, consider breaking your info into separate pyramid templates.
