Bullet points

Why are bullet points still used in presentations? And what about flow charts? Diagrams? Crammed 11-points text? Evocative pictures that have no relationship with what is being told? Tables that touch the margins of the slide? Icons choosen after googling “icons”? Paragraphs used as scripts?

A presentation is for the presenter, because it helps them refining their thoughts and ideas, making them digestible and appealing, preparing them for further elaboration and improvements. And it is, of course, for the audience, who has allocated time on their calendar to give the presenter attention.

Make the extra effort, the rules for a decent presentation are not rocket science. And they apply to yours too.
