  • Things your 
 audience hates about your presentationI0 DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 01Starting with a long intro that's all about you. DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 01 The first few minutes of a presentation are the most important. Start your presentation with a quick introduction to who you are and then reel them in with a compelling opener. DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 02Too much focus on facts and not emotions. DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 02 You won't score points with a data dump. You might impress your audience with your sales growth  but they will walk away remembering how they felt. People remember stories, not facts. DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 03Disorganized content DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 03 Poor presentation flow will lose your audience’s attention. When developing your presentation, outline your content first. This will act as a roadmap that your audience can follow. DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 04Transition & animation overload DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 04 Transitions & animations can create emphasis but too much can be annoying. Keep it simple. If you’re going to use them, choose one or two that are no-frills and stick with them the whole way through. DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 05Being read to DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 05 Avoid putting everything on the slide and reading it out like a script. Stick with a 
 few key ideas. The visual presentation should only complement your verbal one. DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 06Endless charts DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 06 You can make more of an impact by removing the chart altogether and presenting the key takeaways. DESIGNED BY Nothing tunes 
 people out faster than a deck filled with uninspiring charts. http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 07Lack of humor DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 07 No matter what your topic is, don't take yourself too seriously. Humor is a powerful tool. Know your audience, draw from relevant anecdotes, and practice your delivery. DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 08Lack of passion and enthusiasm DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 08 If you're not excited about your topic, why should they be? If your topic doesn't excite you, find something about 
 it that does. 
 Don’t fake it - your audience will see right through it! DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 09Too much information 00 10 1 DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 09 People can only retain three points really well before their retention drops. Start by removing the clutter. Each slide should have a clear focal point and any text or graphic should make a strong impact. 1 2 3 DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 10No engagement or interaction DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
  • 10 You can engage 
 your audience with 
 simple gestures 
 like eye contact, movement around the stage, or discussion. Communication 
 is a two-way street DESIGNED BY http://www.stinsondesign.com/
