Nobody will read an entire résumé on-screen yes yes
This slide has it all: a tiny title, densely packed text, misaligned bullet points, and an eensy-weensy little footer with today’s date and slide number. And the first line of text contains the same information as the title.
Mr. Smith has given us what amounts to an on-screen résumé that details his history and credentials. Does he expect the audience to read the slide from top to bottom while he silently stands by? No, because there is a script in the Speaker Notes. So when will the audience read this, if ever?
There is entirely too much information on this slide, and I have the perfect solution.
While this slide is on screen, Mr. Smith could talk a little bit about his credentials. The text is intriguing and makes the audience want to learn more about Mr. Smith’s background.
