I am not a fan of heavy/text-infested slides and hope my audience also second my opinion. I did resort to the healthy image-text ratio in most of the slides and am relying on my speaking skills during my first presentation! In this context, how should he/she adapt himself to suit the interest of audience,dynamically? If I realize that a couple of sides have turned out to be cumbersome or "boring"**, how should I seamlessly switch over to the next section and regain the lost interest.
**boring = Many example slides are available as follows :
- Example 1 :Slide which talks about the approach of simulation, when actually results of the simulation are the "meat" of the talk.
- Example 2(The first few slides of the talk)
- Hypothetical Talk : Thumbdrives have changed the world, Jan 2003
- Motivation Slide, 1 : End of the road for Floppy Disks(3 Bullets)
- Motivation Slide, 2 : The Storage Roadmap(Image), the arise of the PenDrive(3 Bullets)
- The News Slide, 3 : Ascend,ManDisk and Watergate 3 News Clippings + 3 Images
- The Cool Feature, 4 : Pendrives = 1K X Floppy Disks, they are Reusable CDs
- Paper Starts , 5 : How I used the cool features efficiently to build something even cooler?
