You’re in charge.
- If you are looking for the text on your slide to tell you what’s next, you’re not in charge.
- If you can’t do your presentation without your slides, you’re not in charge.
- If the audience could get the information from your deck without you there, you’re not in charge (and why bother getting people together in person?)
You’re the main attraction. You’re the star. Don’t let your slides upstage you!
