Tip for Better Power Point

I read from presentation expert Seth Godin that a single slide should have not more than six words. He says that the image should evoke emotion and curiosity, and the details can be provided on a handout given after the presentation. People simply cannot listen and read at the same time. Food for thought.

I got this from Presentation Zen: Simple Ideas on Presentation Design and Delivery by Garr Reynolds. It's a meaty read with practical teaching on layouts and presentations.
