Lady with index cardDon’t bore your audience by reading your PowerPoint slides. You don’t want them to think that you don’t care about your speech, do you?

As T. J. Walker (link to: www.youtube.com) recommends, write your text on a piece of paper (I normally recommend index cards) and keep it on a table in front of you, and only put images on the slides. That way you are more likely to use your own words!
