Less is More
Don’t be tempted to put every single word you plan to say on the slide or a sheet of paper.
When presenting to your colleagues, a board or at a conference, the audience want to hear what YOU have to say not read a screen or document.
Too often because we know too much about our subject we
A Overwhelm our audience with too much information so they remember very little
B Sensory overload them with data or images in on screen presentations that distract or do not support what you are saying
C Talk too fast
Sometimes less is more.
As American author and civil rights activist, Maya Angelou is credited as saying “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
With your next presentation, why not try the less is more approach and focus on ensuring people understand what you want to share rather than feeling overwhelmed.
