Start using Presenter View in PowerPoint to ditch cluttered catch-all slides and free up the space for punchy and powerful slides that supplement your delivery.
One of the cardinal sins of PowerPoint slide creation is turning the slide into a textbook page. If the audience wanted to read a book about the subject they would read a book. They are there to hear you speak and to be exposed to the ideas of the presentation. Presenter View allows you to add in notes, keep track of the time, and breaks you of the habit of reading off your over-packed slides. More importantly it frees up the slide to be bold and punchy, drawing attention to graphics, single statements and other easy-to-digest visual snippets.
