  • THE TYPICAL SLIDE The goal of a presentation is to communicate effectively with an audience using each medium properly (properly = the way it works best for the audience) If your slides look like this, you are using the visual communication medium incorrectly because you are changing visual to written communication Audiences will read this slide as soon as it appears on the screen Because audiences cant read and listen at the same time, they will read the slide first and then come back to listening to you Because youre still on Bullet #1 and your audience has read the entire thing, the need for you as the presenter is gone. Youll never catch up to what your audience already knows by reading ahead
