What do you think of this great article addressing poor business presentation visuals?

– Presentation visuals should be visual based.
– Start preparing your presentation away from the computer.
– Tell stories and entertain your audience.

“Slides should only exist to be projected, never printed and never shared. Asking for a copy of slides should become a sackable offence,” says Mr Walken. Or, as Jim says, “great presentation visuals make poor hand-outs.”
