The #FridayFact for this week is one that I’m sure everyone agrees with: no one likes a boring slideshow with crowdedl text on the slides. The Harvard Business Review article Five Presentation Mistakes Everyone Makes, by Nancy Duarte, outlines these errors:
- Failing to engage emotionally.
- Asking too much of your slides.
- Trotting out tired visuals.
- Speaking in jargon.
- Going over your allotted time.
The article is short and easy to read, so take a few minutes to learn how you can improve the presentations you give!
