SpeakerQuestion: How do I use back-up slides if the audience wants more detail?

If back up slides are needed to provide additional detail, you want to follow the same protocol as you used with your primary slides — glance & grab.  Assuming that any back-up slides contain information relevant to what you are talking about, make sure the slides are also:

  • Subordinate to you as the speaker (remember, you are the headline act)
  • Visible to the entire audience (don’t find yourself apologizing to people in the back of the room)
  • Pictorial (whenever possible, use an image to carry the essence of the message)

Thank you V.R. (apparel industry) Cypress, CA for your question!
