Commandments How to Give a Bad Talk
  • Untidy is fine the idea speaks for itself
  • NEVER waste space
  • Long sentences are fine
  • Small text is OK
  • Colour is just showing off
  • Pictures are for weak minds

Reading from the screen ensures accuracy (and
blocking eyelines adds mystery!) NEVER skip
slides in a long talk Practicing underlines low
quality
This is most important. Even if you break the
others, this can save you.
