Default Re: Powerpoint and the Death of Civilisation

If there's text on the screen, people are too busy reading it to listen to you. It really is as simple as that.

My advice is this:
01 - time your presentation.
02 - pick one image for every minute.
03 - 'slide-transitions' are of and from the devil.
Of course, there are a squillion exceptions to these rules, and if I can be bothered to point towards some I may come back. For now I shall leave my edicts as they are.
