PowerPoint is great!

Effects, transitions, flashing text, links, colors, etc – what’s not to like?

But, with so many features and effects available, how are presenters still failing to keep their audience’s interest?

Presentations are visual support. Write too much and half the room will be reading instead of listening. Write too little and your presentation won’t be viable by itself.

Forget about effects – anyone can find the Animations panel. Be busy speaking or have busy slides; never both at the same time. If you do, you’ll be the only person to blame for losing your audience.
