Why make slides...

Why make slides which you will not present?

Last week I attended a presentation. The presenter is organising an event in August and is looking for sponsors. His presentation had 14 slides. While presenting he just skipped the first few slides. Each of these slides had 7 bullet points and on each of this slide he said, "this is about the event" and moved on.

I wonder, why do we waste time in showing slides which are not needed. Just delete the slide and save time. Our audience will think we are not serious when we begin presenting with a set of redundant slides.

  1. @David: I agree. Depending on the audience, the slides do change. Some slides are needed and some become redundant. In such cases, hiding the slide is the best option. Not moving over it without talking about it.
