Seth Godin on words on slides

Seth Godin:

Don’t read the words. It’s bad enough that people use Powerpoint as a sort of teleprompter. Much worse that you don’t trust the audience enough to read what you wrote. If you want them to read the precise words, stand quietly until they do. If you want to paraphrase the words, that can work.

So few presentations even need slides. But, if they do they rarely require the words written on the slides to be read aloud. Especially if the phrase is simply the next “section” of your talk. This has always been a pet peeve of mine personally. Glad Seth sees the same thing.
