Some of the things I find important to take into account, when preparing interesting lecture or presentation. I tried to include various styles and developments in this area, as well as my own perceptions. In this version there is no animation, and I largely removed parts connected with the clever use of it. Also almost all the pictures are mine (which explains their comparably poor quality :o)), but on the other hand it makes my presentation more intimate and unique as I think :o)

  32. 32. About Size Without bullets it’s even worse. If I will use small fonts no one will see or understand anything. This will be just a useless slide. In some cases it might make sense, but I want to be a good speaker. I do not want people to get frustrated. One can argue that if someone will ask for my presentation, then he/she can read it at home, but still it does not make sense. It is better to put less information, but to make it readable. If I just intend to read all of this during my lecture, then this is a violation of another rule we will talk later. If I just want to show how much I know or did, still it is not good, since boasting is not good. I could just divide this information into several slides, if everything I say here is that important. Nothing should be “additional” or “useless” on the slide. Everything I put on the slide should make sense.
