Director, National Senior Living Provider

In most presentations, especially those involving PowerPoint, less is more. We talk too much. We use too many words to make our point. When was the last time you left a meeting wishing that the presenter had more slides?

We live in an attention-based economy. Therefore, begin with your conclusion first and then share data points and examples. Otherwise, your audience will get lost in the details and miss your overarching message.
