Is this a presentation or a slide show?

Posted on September 17, 2009


Since you, not the slides, should be the focal point for your audience, stand in the same line of sight as the screen. The slides should support you, not vice versa. If you’re 90 degrees from the screen, you’ll never be able to draw the audience’s attention from the motion, light and color of the slides. Be sure all corners of the audience can see the screen (keep it high enough, angled properly), but remember the job of the slides is to reinforce or illustrate what you say–you’re not conducting a slide show.
