  • This page contains too many words for a presentation slide. It is not written in point form, making it difficult both for the audience to read and for the presenter to present each point. This looks much more complicated. In short, your audience will spend too much time trying to read this paragraph instead of listening to the presenter. Content: Example . . . February 11, 2011 BACK
