It will be easier for your audience to pay attention and follow you if you have a clear message. Eliminate any unnecessary material that could clutter your message and confuse your audience. Have a clear organizing principle and share your high-level agenda early in your presentation.
2. Avoid text-heavy slides
People can read to themselves faster than you can read out loud, so they will finish reading the words before you and wonder when you’re going to move on. If you do have longer text on the slide, such as a quotation, leave that slide up for longer so people have time to read and absorb it.
