❌ Never Read Your PowerPoint Slides
After a good 20 years in the presentation business, we have seen and heard a ton of presentations. When it comes to giving an inspiring and convincing presentation, here’s one piece of absolutely essential advice:
Never read directly from a PowerPoint slide during a presentation.”
Your audience can see and read the slides for themselves. Reading your slides aloud is boring, uninspired, slows down your presentation’s momentum and diminishes your persuasiveness.
Instead, provide additional information and give your audience the chance to absorb your slides and content at their own pace. Let your slides speak for themselves.
So remember: never read your presentation slides.
