The results are in, and audiences have had enough of bad presentations.
1. Presenters who read from the slides (73.8 percent)
2. Slides with full sentences instead of bullet points (51.6 percent)
3. Fonts that are too small to read (48.1 percent)
These top annoyances are the result of information overload, Paradi says. “When a presenter feels that they have to include everything … the slides will be a confusing mass of text and numbers that give the audience no clue on what the important takeaway should be,” he explains.
