From ChangeThis: The typical presen­ta­tion to a small group today is designed just as if it were being made to a large group in a big audi­to­rium. We follow the same advice in creating our slides, and then we turn on the portable projector and inflict slide after dead­ening slide on our audi­ence — vintage Death by Power­Point. Too much of this effort is wasted. There is ample research evidence that projecting lots of text and speaking at the same time is so distracting to your audi­ence that it is less effec­tive than projecting your slides and asking your audi­ence to read them while you remain silent, or speaking with no slides at all!” · Go to Presenting to Small Audi­ences: Turn Off the Projector! →
