  • A typical structured slide, with a list of short bullet points that attempt to convey essential ideas in the presentation.
  • Although these bullet point slides do display a lot of information, the lack of visual appeal is likely to dull audience senses before too long.
  • This slide effectively portrays the concept of retaining employees, but it obviously doesn’t convey the same depth of detail that Slide 1 offers. The presenter would need to orally list those same points or create additional slides to convey them.
  • Note how this slide conveys the “Listening without criticizing” bullet point from Slide 2.This slide is also a good example of why free-form designs often require many more slides to present the same body of information (because each slide tends to focus on a single idea, rather than a list of ideas in bullet form).
