Forget the Cheaters

A reader recently asked a question about using speaker notes when delivering a presentation –  ‘I need to use reading glasses to see my notes and that makes it difficult to focus in on audience members’ eyes. Now what?’

My Answer – Simply create actual speaker notes instead of a copy of your outline, or worse, a verbatim text. Notes should be short and simple with a few key words.  Increase the font size to 18 point and make the text bold. You ought to be able to easily see them without your cheaters. Try to make the type large enough so you can even leave them on the table in front of you and still easily see them.
