Avoid ‘sin of triple delivery’ — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
To ensure your speech sinks in, you prepare slides and place handouts on everyone’s chair. Then you spend most of your presentation reading what’s on the slides and handouts. You’re committing what speech experts call the “sin of triple delivery” in which you speak aloud what’s already on the screen and on paper. Skip the rote recitation. Use slides to build on what you say or to provide graphic clarity.
