The Venn diagram is one of the most common non-bullet slides you’ll find in any given presentation. Originally created by John Venn in 1880, Venn diagrams were invented as a way of picturing relationships between different groups of information.  

A Venn diagram uses overlapping circles or other shapes to illustrate the logical relationships between two or more sets of items. You may see things in new ways and be able to make observations, choices, arguments or decisions. Often, they serve to graphically organize information, highlighting how the items are similar and different.

Venn diagram slides are commonly used in:

  • Business presentations
  • Statistics
  • Probability

Pro Tips for Venn Diagram Slides

Here are a couple of things to remember when putting together a Venn diagram slide:

What are you trying to visualize?

What are you comparing, and why? A Venn diagram slide should be used when the goal is to visually organize information which shows commonalities and differences. The usage can range from elementary to highly advanced.

Use color to make your Venn diagram slides stand out

Although these diagrams are extremely simple in nature, a Venn diagram template like the one in allows you to further differentiate your data. Colors should match the theme of your presentation.

Consider using multiple Venn diagram slides

For a more in depth analysis of relationships, the circles or shapes can be separated out onto consecutive slides and then brought together at the end. This method shows the relationship between the compared items in a more dramatic fashion.
