  19. 19. Reading is BAD
  20. 20. Critically important slide Even though this slide is using a 30 point font, the challenge with this glorious slide is that it is too wordy. People who create slides tend to put every word that they are going to say on their slides. Although this does eliminate the need for you to memorize your talk, ultimately this makes your slides look crowded, wordy, and boring. Remember, people can read far faster than you can talk, a typical ratio of at least 10 to 1. So, by the time you’ve bothered saying this out loud, your audience has finished reading it and has gone from paying rapt attention to you to checking their email, browsing Reddit, and updating their Facebook with a status about the most ridiculous meeting they’ve ever been trapped in and how they need a bingo call from somebody - anybody - to help them escape from what’s sure to be a continual onslaught of poorly conceived slides such as this.
