Use Your Audience to Prove Your Point Instead of a Slide

Often, when giving a presentation, we have to show statistics to illustrate our point. Instead of using a slide, consider getting the audience involved to help them understand the numbers.

The Muse gives some suggestions for audience involvement:

For instance, rather than show everyone that 20% of your demographic thinks one way through a boring slide, try having 20% of them move to one side of the room. Or, have the chairs already set up at 20/80 when people arrive, and at some point ask if they know why they're seated that way.

You may need to prep the room in advance and this requires a willing audience, but it's a good way to lessen your reliance on slides.
