Others who are anal retentive or who are very insecure and are afraid they will miss something important, will try to read the slides word-for-word while you are trying to talk, and that is not good either, because these losers will not retain either the written or the spoken word. Others will just feel overwhelmed and tune out of your presentation altogether.”
