  14. 14. Make it Large, Centered and to the point! What you have on the screen should only be key points to jog your memory and to stand you to your audience. No body wants to read large bunches of text on the screen. Often people are to far away to see it. Reading that large bunch of text out load is silly too because your audience can read it to themselves faster in their head. But then you are left there staring a a screen waiting for them to finish reading, but you don’t know when they are finished, so you wait too long. Then because the room is hot and stuffy your audience goes to sleep, someone in the back starts to snore and everyone else starts fiddling on their laptops and tweeting that “this is the lamest presentation ever!”.
  15. 15. If you can say it with a picture or movie then use it! Apples grow on trees!
  16. 16. 5 Try the five slide challenge! Make a slideshow about a topic with only five slides. Have no more than five words on each slide. Have at least one but no more than five pictures on each slide.
