Always talk to your audience 24

Слайд 24

Never just read every single word on the slide, because the audience can probably read faster than you can talk, and it doesn’t add any additional value, and it may be written in really small font, like 12 point, so it’s actually pretty hard for people to read it, blah-blah-blah… 25

No barriers! 26
