Keep it simple - Bad This slide contains too many words for a presentation slide. It is not written in point form, making it difficult both for your audience to read and for you to present each point. Although there are only 3 points on this slide, it looks much more complicated. In short, your audience will spend too much time trying to read this slide instead of listening to you.
Keep it simple - GoodShow one point at a time: Will help audience concentrate on what you’re saying Will prevent audience from reading ahead Will help keep your presentation focused.
