Originally posted in flickr by Zach Graham, his photo of a presentation slide symbolizes what not to do with presentation slide software. I can only imagine the painful looks on the faces of the audience. The presenter’s use of a microphone indicates either a large room or a large crowd. Imagine how far back you sat, trying to squint at the slides.
I can only imagine the face of the presenter, because with his body position, with the back of his head facing his audience as he reads every word, he tells volumes about delivery and the use of visuals.
Even funnier to me is the title of this 150+ word slide: “Conclusion.”
I chanced upon this while in one of my favorite blogs on visual design and delivery, Garr Reynold’s Presentation Zen blog.
