BITS - Powerpoint

Discussion in 'The Training Wing' started by PartTimePongo, Oct 30, 2003.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Has anyone got any training notes, for doing Powerpoint presentations the Army way?

    Had some notes, now lost, and trying to replace them

    Thanks in advance

    Contact your friendly Brigade Specialist Training Team. I'm sure they'll help you out.

  3. Used to have something, but fcuk knows where it has gone, but basically said, "keep it simple, in black & white with minimum fancy stuff" or it becomes death by power point. Have to disagree with statement as I have seen some tremendous power point presentations, which have been entertaining as well as putting the lesson across.

    Good luck.
  4. I was always told - bright blue background and yellow text, with no fancy transitions or sound effects. Unless you want to wake them up of course !! :D
  5. Yeh, deponding on the audience of course, have every tenth slide a picture of page three of the sun. Guaruntees undiveded attention. :roll:
  6. There is a guide that is produced by the design studio at Upavon. Best contact to get a copy would be one of the staff at Methods Section, Army School of Training Support (where they do the BIT training).

    They are a friendly, helpful bunch who like to spread the good word on presentations etc.

  7. Part Time

    Give us a PM and I can email you a load of stuff which is currently used on the BITS course.

    a few precis and a powerpoint presentation.
  8. BITS course is a top laugh- mine was only the two weekend TA one but I really enjoyed it. Day one is death by viewfoil but the rest was great! I did mine at Fulwood in Preston and i would recommend it to any fellow STAB!

    (But don't go to LegEnds night club by the football ground, its fcukin AWFUL!!!)
  9. The Army PowerPoints main idea is to be f*cking boring. Blue background, yellow writing.

    Break the mould and produce a presentation that will keep the soldiers interested unless of course you’re giving it to someone important then stick with boring they love it.
