Fonts say it all Classic, formal Times Clean, modern Arial Stylish, reflective Calibri Babyish, playful Comic
Position is everything Many presentations will be given in a very liner structure – we try to stay away from this. This can be tiresome, because its been seen and done on countless presentations. The mind cannot remember one slide to the next – there is nothing distinctive about it. It can take up to much room. People would rather listen than read. You might as well write nothing.
