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.
